Brighten Your Weekend with Solar SUNday

Learn the basics of solar power and energy efficiency

Brighten your weekend and join the Community Environmental Council for its Solar SUNday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 19 at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.

Learn the basics of solar power and energy efficiency, discover new technologies and find out how to finance finance solar for your home. There will be more than 20 exhibitors with new ideas to “green” your life, and children’s activities.

The South County Energy Efficiency Partnership is a sponsor of the event and will be giving away compact fluorescent light bulbs at booth No. 9. Also at the booth, volunteers will demonstrate and compare how much energy it takes to power incandescent light bulbs vs. energy-saving CFLs utilizing a special stationary bicycle.

From 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., a representative of Southern California Edison will give a talk on “Solar Financing.”

Admission to the museum is free for the day.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
