He is a professor, former department chair of the Building Systems Technology department, and served as Director of the Hudson Valley Apprenticeship Association for Hudson Valley Community College (HVCC). Prior to joining IREC’s team, Joe was the Executive Director of TEC-SMART, HVCC’s “Training and Education Center for Semi-Conductor Manufacturing and Alternative and Renewable Technologies”. Joe is the Project Manager for IREC, National Administrator of U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Instructor Training Network.

Ms. Zhou is responsible for CleanEdison’s online marketing initiatives, website, and press relations. Prior to joining CleanEdison, Julia was a marketing consultant at Publicis Groupe, where she consulted on advertising and promotional strategies for Fortune 100 brands in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in Economics and Political Science.

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.
