All things solar energy at home

Listen

Guests: John Farrell, Lee Keshishian, and Jenny Heinzen

Guest host Jeff Brady hosts a follow-up show on solar energy: today we’re going over the basics of solar energy, home installation, and policy. We’ll learn how the technology works, pricing, how it gets installed, common misconceptions of solar energy, pros and cons of using it, safety issues, and much more. We’ll hear from JOHN FARRELL, the director of Democratic Energy at the Institute for Local Self-Reliance in Minneapolis, MN, and LEE KESHISHIAN, a regional vice president from SolarCity. We’ll also be joined by JENNY HEINZEN, master electrician and the training coordinator for MREA, the Midwest Renewable Energy Association.
