Event Details

Save the date to join @EcoOutfitters for the next #SolarChat, to be held on Twitter on November 14th, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. EST. We will be discussing climate change with journalists from RenewableEnergyWorld.com and Climate Progress, and sharing thoughts and ideas on the dire need for more solar energy. As the east coast is doing its best to recover and rebuild after the devastation from Hurricane Sandy, this is a very timely and important topic.

Our panelist will be Elisa Wood (@ElisaWood), who has been writing about energy for more than two decades. She regularly contributes to Renewable Energy World, AOL Energy, and McGraw-Hill/Platts Energy and writes a weekly blog that appears on more than 100 energy, business, and environmental sites. Her articles have been picked by the New York Times, Reuters and CNN.  See her work at RealEnergyWriters.com.

Also joining us from Renewable Energy World will be Meg Cichon (@ReWorld), associate editor. Meg coordinates and edits feature stories, as well as contributes articles, news stories, opinion pieces and blogs. In addition to researching and writing content for RenewableEnergyWorld.com and REW magazine, Meg manages REW.com social media including Facebook, Twitter (@REWorld), LinkedIn, and Google+.

We will also be joined by Stephen Lacey (@Stphn_Lacey), the deputy editor /blogger for Climate Progress, where he writes on clean energy policy, technologies, and finance. Before joining CP, he was an editor/producer with RenewableEnergyWorld.com. He received his B.A. in journalism from Franklin Pierce University.

#SolarChat welcomes solar and renewable industry experts and consumers who are "solar curious" to discuss relevant issues like solar energy, solar PV, solar hot water, solar pool heating, and related subjects. The Twitter chat
 provides an opportunity to connect homeowners and qualified installation professionals, to demonstrate the affordability and environmental impact of all types of solar solutions, and to educate consumers on this emerging field. "We believe in the power of solar to change the world," says Raina Russo, co-founder and president of EcoOutfitters.net and founder of #SolarChat (@EcoOutfitters). "We hope #SolarChat will further advance EcoOutfitters' goal of making solar a reality for every American home and business." 

For those new to Twitter, a hashtag (#) is an easy way to find and follow people who are tweeting about a certain topic. #SolarChat has a simple mission: Curious consumers, energy experts, and installation professionals can tune into Twitter at the designated chat time to share advice and resources, weigh in on discussion topics, pose questions or concerns, and work together to advance solar awareness.

#SolarChat is held on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month from 2:00-3:00 p.m. EST.
