Mark Durrenberger ( started installing renewable energy systems in 2006 and Bijan KHosraviani ( started improving home energy efficiency in 2009. 

Why do they do this? As it turns out, the energy usage of buildings and homes is a major component of climate change.

Mark will cover: 

  • Climate change, what's happening, and how buildings can help
  • How solar energy works and its climate benefits
  • The financial aspects of solar electricity for residential and commercial installations

Bijan will discuss:

  • Building science and what it means
  • Energy efficiency and what it means for economics, comfort, and climate
  • Common ways to get a more efficient home and/or office

Both presenters will talk about the key economic incentives for "greening" up your buildings including the SMART solar incentive, MassSave for New Construction and Renovations & Additions (R&A), and federal and state tax incentives.
