The discussion will also include solar projects in the community that Creighton students could get involved with.

-from the Omaha World Herald
Creighton University, the Wind Energy Foundation, and Washington-based consultants David Gardiner and Associates are authors of a recent report which found that “the renewables industry is responsible for $1 billion worth of investment in Nebraska so far and has the potential to create as many as 44,645 construction jobs.”

This event is co-sponsored by Nebraskans for Solar. Space is limited, so please RSVP to Events Organizer, Helen Deffenbacher to add your reservation: nebraskansforsolar@gmail.com
