Acterra series addresses climate
Acterra, the Palo Alto-based nonprofit environmental education group, has scheduled two discussions in its ongoing “Solving the Climate Puzzle” series.
Both presentations are scheduled 7 p.m. at Fenwick & West LLP, 801 California St., Mountain View.
• April 3: “Crowd-Sourcing Solar and Other Innovative Financing for Renewables.” Billy Parish, founder and president of Mosaic Inc., an investment platform for solar energy, will describe how his company’s approach is jump-starting commercial-scale solar projects while giving small investors a way to benefit from the growing solar market. Called a “Climate Hero” by Rolling Stone magazine and one of “50 Visionaries Changing the World” by Utne Reader, Parish has pioneered innovative thinking for solar finance. RSVP by 5 p.m. April 3.
• May 1: “California’s Progress Toward a Clean Energy Economy.” Janea Scott, member of the California Energy Commission, is one of five officials charged with implementing the state’s energy policies. She will discuss the growing role of renewable energy in the state’s economy as well as CEC programs that support energy efficiency and conservation, cutting-edge research and renewable energy development. Scott will draw on her recent experience at the U.S. Department of the Interior with the development of renewable energy on public lands. RSVP by 5 p.m. May 1.
Cost per lecture is $8 in advance, $10 at the door.
