Revelry Oktoberfest Was A Blast

Last Wednesday, Solar One was delighted to have 225 friends over to the Oktoberfest tent to celebrate solar development, our programs and Bavarian culture (did you know Solar One and Stuyvesant Cove Park are located at the north end of the former Kleinedeutschland of the 19th century?)!

Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate with us, to everyone who donated even though they couldn't come, to the amazing team at Zum Schneider, to Sylvester Schneider himself for underwriting the event, to our Lederhosen sponsor Con Edison, our Gingerbread sponsors SolarCity and Terry Hueneke and Michael Ross, and to all our sponsors and guests. As always, we couldn't do it without you!

Guests were able to drink genuine Oktoberfest beer from Munich, eat Bavarian cuisine and even ride a carousel! Business Insider said that Zum Schneider's Oktoberfest tent was the most authentic outside Munich!

We hope to see you all next year!

Conquering the Energy Code with Urban Green Council This Month

Conquering the Energy Code, based on the upcoming 2015 IECC, teaches design professionals the structure and rationale behind the energy code. The courses help architects and engineers navigate the various pathways to compliance and provide an understanding of how to incorporate best energy conservation practices into their projects. The courses translate the code's language into plain English, and include practical information about documentation requirements and progress inspections.

Courses are available for commercial or residential design professionals. Please use the links below to register!

Conquering the Energy Code for Commercial Architects and Engineers:

Conquering the Energy Code for Residential Architects:

$75 course fee includes a course manual.

Come to the NYC Premiere of Tamar Rogoff's Enter the Faun at the Margaret Mead Film Festival

Solar One Founding Artistic Director Tamar Rogoff has spent the past few years working on this super exciting project, a documentary about teaching a young actor with cerebral palsy to dance ballet.

If you were fortunate enough to see the piece that resulted live at La Mama, you know what an extraordinary feat this was. If you were not, good news! Now you can see the finished documentary at the NYC premiere on October 25 at noon.

Tickets are available here, but hurry! They are going fast...
