There is a concerted effort going on to squash solar across the nation, and Massachusetts is one front in this battle. As the state legislature gears up to consider an omnibus energy bill, we are seeing more rhetoric spewing from the anti-solar lobbyists.

At our March BASEA Forum, we will take aim at the pro-fossil fuels campaign that is spreading this misleading "stuff" locally. Mark Sandeen of Mass Solar will be our guide as we dissect, inspect and learn effective ways to reject the questionable messaging they are putting out.

Mark Sandeen serves as the President of Mass Solar and is the founder of RePower Partners, LLC, responsible for managing and developing their portfolio of solar energy projects. Mark has built and led high-growth, high-tech teams at Avidyne, Object Design and Intel. He is Chair of the Sustainable Lexington Committee and a member of Lexington's Better Buildings, Community Choice and Solar Energy Task Forces. Mark also writes the monthly column, All Things Sustainable for Colonial Times Magazine.

Get informed on Thursday, March 10th, to better arm yourself for the battle ahead. Here are two links that give examples on how our solar community is pushing back against those who are blowing smoke!
