    Thinking we need a new roof (looking for eco/solar alternatives)

    I’ve been thinking about putting a solar hot water system on my roof, and a few tickets to this would sure help me choose the right local installer and/or technician. One of my main questions is whether or not I can tie a solar hot water system into a smaller tank, since the area which contains my hot water heater is small. In addition, I’d like to learn about new technologies, such as evacuated tubes, which may increase solar hot water production on overcast days.

    I would love to go check this out. I’m a full time environmentalism student. I could sure use a couple free tickets.

    We have a passion for clean energy; and are looking to merge into the the solar industry not only for personal reasons but to investigate becoming installers! :)

    Close friends of mine are building a home in the nearby mountains and need info like this.

    Just re-roofed and considering some panels. Thx!

    My boyfriend works in the solar industry and hates his job. He hates it so much that he comes home in physical pain and buries his face in books for hours so he could ignore the stress. To put it lightly, there is so my grumpiness in his pants right now that I told him we should pack our bags and flee this cloudy, sunless, festering mold-town (I grew up here so I can say that kind of stuff).

    So why would I want to torture him and take him to the Solar Expo when he deals with it all day (yet rarely gets to actually SEE the sun)? So he’ll realize that he’s overeducated and underpaid and worth a lot more than the stress and pain he deals with every day. Call it a bit of a confidence booster. A little networking never hurt anybody.

    with solar dropping in $ so much, i’ve been considering FiNaLLy making my project happen…this may just be the leg-up i need to take the deciding step!

    Seems like a great opportunity to learn more about solar power and utilizing it in the home.

    Would love to try something different and learn something in The process.

    We have attended Solarize North Portland and would like to compare other technologies before committing in 10 days to a solar PV system.

    My husband and I are interested in finding out about solar heating options for our home

  15. Maegan April 28, 2011 at 5:37 pm #

    I promise not to do a rain dance if you give me the Solar World tickets…I also will “gift” them to my husband who has done nothing but talk about how much he would love to go to the conference. It will be a belated anniversary gift!

    I would love to win tickets so me and my girlfriend could go get a first hand education from the experts on alternative energy options for our home this weekend and perhaps pick up a great deal on some equipment.

    Lets solarize Portland. If you know anyone who is unemployed or interested in installing a system on their home or business come out and educate yourself, its probably alot cheaper than you think. Then go home and tell your friends, lets spread the interest and build the green collar industry right here. It starts with you and me. I’ll be out there, free tickets or not.

    I need to figure out how to get power from where the sun DOES shine.
