Solar or Wind Energy for Your House? Yes, Now Really Is the Time

Wednesday, February 11th / 7:00 PM

If you have ever wondered whether you could power your house from the sun or wind, this is the talk for you. Due to engineering advancements, cost reductions and generous state and federal incentives, there has never been a better time to take the next step toward making your house greener. Professor Drennen will discuss renewal energy options for homeowners. He will share his own experiences with having solar installed, including the economics and what you can expect once a contract is installed. And for those without a south facing roof or open land, there are still options available to consider, including purchasing shares in wind farms.

This lecture will be presented by Thomas Drennen, a Professor of Economics and Environmental Studies. Dr. Drennen has a B.S in Nuclear Engineering from MIT, and a Ph.D in Resource Economics from Cornell University. He is Chair of the Environmental Studies Program. He specializes in energy issues. He has taught at HWS since 1997.

lavender tray-3Nancy Berger, of Brightsky Creations, will be exhibiting naturescapes and photography in an exhibit titled ‘Unique Imperfections’ at The Wood Library in Canandaigua, from 12/15/2014 until 01/31/2015.

Naturescapes use a variety of leaves and flowers to create unique designs,  thus named ‘Unique Imperfections’.
Earning a Graphic Arts Degree, studying photography and mastering Close up of original Ox Bowcalligraphy were just the beginning for Nancy at Brightsky Creations. Using those skills to portray the beauty of nature is the focus of this exhibit. Nancy’s hope is that those who visit the 3rd floor of Wood Library to view ‘Unique Imperfections’  will enjoy the exhibit as much as Nancy enjoys creating each unique item.

Many items will be for sale.  The exhibit will be open during regular library hours.
