Potential topics for these meetings include:

Solar Gardens Institute Charter
      - As SGI has grown, specific roles, expectation, and democratic process have become essential.  Download the proposed charter here - feel free to make comments!

SGI Regional Group for Colorado
      - The Solar Gardens Institute started in Colorado, but has gone national and even worldwide.  It's time to strengthen our roots back home.

Solar and Fracking
      - Solar Power will reduce the total use of fossil fuels.  But will high solar penetration increase the use of natural gas?  Not if we do it right.

Community Shared Solar Policy
      - I've been selected as a reviewer for the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) Model Rules for Shared Renewable Energy Programs.

Solar garden participation for low income subscribers.
     - Five percent of solar garden capacity in Colorado is reserved for customers with incomes below 185% of the poverty line.  Learn about financial models for making this possible.
