JustGoods Listening Room, 201 7th Street, will be hosting Meet the Solar Ambassador on Tuesday featuring Klaus Hoffmann, Chief Engineer at Ingersoll Machine Tools. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. and is sponsored by the Blackhawk Sierra Club.
Hoffmann was presently named a Solar Ambassador for the Illinois Solar Energy Association, which is dedicated to supporting and accelerating the growth of the solar industry through education and advocacy. At this presentation Hoffmann will describe the development of the solar panel system at his home and give a cost analysis as well as discuss the future of the solar industry.
Hoffmann installed their family’s solar panels in 2011 and for the last few years has produced more electricity than they have consumed.
Also during this event Lee Schreiner, treasurer of Rockford Urban Ministries, will give a brief presentation on his experiences putting solar panels on the roof of JustGoods.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information contact Stanley Campbell at 815-964-7111.
