Welcome to the Dallas Group of the Sierra Club
Dallas Sierra Club General Meeting - Tuesday, December 10
Solar Power for Homeowners
Do you think it's finally time to go solar at your house? Are your neighbors jealous of the sleek new solar system on your roof and constantly pestering you with questions about how they can get one too?
Chris Guldi will share the results of leasing a solar power system on her house. And Plano Solar Advocates (www.planosolar.org) will tell us about their Solarize Plano Project, a pilot program that aims to demystify the process for homeowners of getting a PV system installed on their roof. After holding information sessions this summer and signing up Plano homeowners ready to install solar, the group selected a qualified installer, negotiated a group deal, and are moving into the installation phase for participants.
Let's make the DFW area a leader in solar power in Texas! Bring a friend and learn how to organize a group to Solarize your city! Plano Solar Advocates is a volunteer grass roots group with the mission to increase awareness and use of solar energy for electricity generation in Plano. Here is a link to a July 21, 2013, Dallas Morning News article about Plano Solar Advocates.
Everyone is welcome. You don't have to be a Sierra Club member.
Our General Meeting starts at 7:00 pm, but come at 6:30 for snacks, information and fellowship. Click over to our General Meeting page for more information and a map.
Dallas Sierra Club Holiday Party
Our annual Holiday Party will be held at El Fenix Restaurant at 255 Casa Linda Plaza. We'll party on Sunday, December 15 from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm. Here is a Google map.
Club members and guests will share the holiday spirit, some great Mexican food, and the company of others at this annual event. Join us for some camaraderie, door prizes, silent auction, and perhaps some surprise speakers, you never know. We'll celebrate some of our outstanding volunteers and have plenty of time to mingle. There's bound to be talk about issues of the day -- air, water, fracking, coal, nuclear, whatever strikes your green fancy. The entire menu will be available so you can order whatever you want to eat or drink, including liquid spirits. We'll provide a free round of margaritas. Support the Club by getting a 2014 Sierra Club Calendar or Planner!. Invite your family and friends. So come on out for a great party, low price, no clean up, and lots of like minded people. What could be better? See you there, and bring your appetite. Happy Holidays!!
