sunnyside energyThis month's featured guests are John Sorenson & Seth Truby, co-founders of  Sunnyside Neighborhood Energy(SunNE) .  Their aim is to build a local renewable energy system based at the Sunnyside Environmental school that would provide space heat and hot water for hundreds of nearby homes and small businesses.  Thermal energy districts have been created in towns and villages in Canada and Europe; if SunNE succeeds, it will be a first for residential neighborhood of existing homes in the United States.  John and Seth have also created  Northwest Neighborhood Energy (N2E) to create similar energy districts all over the city of Portland.  Check their website (after 3/25/09) for upcoming events!
