We had a very educational meeting, with our speakers Matt Papke (speaking on city updates and issues) and Andrew Munoz of Solar City (speaking on SRP’s rate increase and the latest solar controversies in our state.)
Below are some links and articles to follow up on the topics discussed. Our speakers requested us to post these, so that our members may review and take action where they feel it is needed. Voices from both sides on some of these issues were in attendance at our meeting.
