The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N. is sponsoring a Going Green Sustainability Lecture entitled “Solarize The Woodlands” to be held at the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC), located at 8801 Gosling Road, The Woodlands, on Thursday, January 17th, at 7:00 p.m. Dori Wolfe, founder of Wolfe Energy and an active member of Solarize Houston (a non-profit project sponsored by Houston Renewable Energy Group), will speak to the group about how to bring solar to the area, via rooftop solar for homes and businesses or via community solar arrays. Topic: Learn about an exciting opportunity for local residents and business owners to bring solar energy to The Woodlands with a non-profit project sponsored by Houston Renewable Energy Group (HREG). Through competitive bidding for the installer and group purchasing for the enrollees, investing in rooftop solar can be made simple and financially attractive. Since 2016, HREG has conducted three “Solarize Houston” campaigns with great success. In early 2019 HREG plans to bring the program to greater-Houston area neighborhoods such as The Woodlands; where neighbors encourage neighbors to “go solar”. SPEAKER: Dori Wolfe founded Wolfe Energy in order to share her passion for energy conservation and renewable sources. She has been actively involved in Solarize Houston since 2012 and been working to bring community solar projects to fruition. These projects include a 7 Megawatt array in Stafford, Vermont, which came on line in 2017. It is the largest Superfund solar project in the northeast. In 2015, Wolfe developed a 110 kW array benefitting 5 local non-profits in the same town and in September brought on-line the first “hybrid” community solar array owned 100% by residents while also benefiting the town. Dori has dedicated substantial volunteer time to educating students and communities in sustainable practices including developing an elementary school energy curriculum, serving over 10 years on the town energy committee, and lecturing on renewable energy. Dori has a BSME degree from Cornell University. Those who attend will also enjoy learning about HARC’s energy and water efficient building, which has been awarded the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum Green Building Certification. HARC’s is the first building in The Woodlands or Montgomery County to be designated as such.
