Michael Osborne

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Your presence is requested on this exciting night full of possibilities, as we welcome Michael Osborne at a special happy hour event:


Join us for an exciting evening that will start with some good old fashioned networking with the Solar Austin community, and will be topped off by a welcome dose of discussion with one of Austin's finest and most well known personalities - Michael Osborne, Principal at Osborne Companies, and former Special Assistant to the General Manager at Austin Energy.  

Michael is an author, inventor, and policy maker.  He has served on the steering committees of the State of Texas Energy Policy Partnership and the Sustainable Energy Development Council under Governor Ann Richards, and on the Texas Energy Coordination Council appointed by then Governor George Bush.

He has been a renewable energy and climate change activist since the mid 1970s when he designed and built his first passive solar home.  In 1981, he  installed the first wind farm in Texas. In 1983, his company, Osborne Solar, became the Solarex distributor for Texas.  Throughout the 90s, his company documented and leased the wind resource for the West Texas windfields.  He is one of three founding members of the Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association.

His book, Lightland, is a philosophical look at the human potential in light of the challenge of climate change.  His book, Silver in the Mine, is a long term comprehensive energy plan for the City of Austin, Texas. His third is an allegory called Day of the Heart. His most recent work is Beyond Light and Dark. All of his works are available in bookstores and at Amazon.com. His blog can be found at earthfamilyalpha. 

Please join us to welcome Michael Osborne to the Solar Austin Happy Hour stage!

 State Parking Garages can be found next to, behind and across from Scholz Garten. San Jacinto Blvd., 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and Trinity have parking garage entrances.


Although our happy hours are free and open to all, we hope you'll consider donating to Solar Austin.  Help us keep solar energy growing in the Austin area.  You can purchase a ticket to the happy hour or go to our website, www.SolarAustin.org, to donate.  You will avoid fees by going to our website.
