January Solar Drinks!
Solar and Renewables at New Columbia
Doors Open at 6 p.m., Speaker at 7 p.m.
Solar Oregon opens its first Solar Drinks of the year at New Columbia. Solar Oregon is a Portland-based non-profit that works to promote solar energy and solar energy education around Oregon. New Columbia is an 82-acre redevelopment that incorporates a broad range of solar and sustainable approaches. Since its completion, the LEED certified redevelopment has been awarded both the National Award for Smart development and the National Home Builders Association for Best Urban Smart Growth Neighborhood/Community development. Linda Barnes, one of the founding partners of the women-owned architectural firm Merryman Barnes Architects, will walk us through the unique sustainability approaches used to create New Columbia.
Come join us and our guest speaker in discussing the many lives and transformations of New Columbia.
