Event Description

Presenter: Dean Towle, Keahole Solar Power
Topic: Make Electricity and Beer: Various applications of solar thermal collectors and cold ocean water.

Keahole Solar Power operates a 2MW (thermal) 0.5MW (electrical) solar thermal power plant at NELHA.  In addition to using the heat to make electricity, plant operator Dean Towle has brewed a batch or two of beer.  We will tour the facility to see the new Calnetix generator and the MAGE desalinator.  Dean will discuss future plans for the site.

BYOB and a pupu to share.  We have heard that there may be some solar beer to sample.  We will have a BBQ set up, and I am bringing veggie burgers, ketchup, and extra buns.  BYOM.  If someone would like to bring hot dogs, please let me know. 

We want this to be a zero-waste event.  Please plan to take back your trash and bring reusable materials rather than disposable ones.
