The FLAT recently had the opportunity to host the Alternative Energy Resources Organization’s (AERO) Energy Solutions Workshop. The success of this workshop was ensured by hands-on demonstrations, expert energy advice, and plenty of socializing and networking among workshop participants. The goal of this workshop was to demonstrate how homeowners, businesses, and local governments can reduce energy use and get started with renewable energy. For more information about AERO and their great work across the state of Montana please visit www.aeromt.org.
The workshop started with a tour of projects at the UM FLAT. Then presentations included wind power, solar, and green energy demonstrations. An energy assessment was even done on the house! We finished off the day by building our own portable, solar panel cell phone chargers! F pictures as well as a passive solar model for the FLAT’s Studio please see our community events page!
