The October meeting is a "triple-header."

There will be a multi-media presentation by some of the homeowners who hosted visitors. There will be an overview of tours sites while they describe what they've done for energy efficiency and solar energy, and answer your questions.

Larry Howe of  Plano Solar Advocates will provide an update us of Texas Home Owner Association legislation and recent Metroplex "solar ordinance" activity.

After the meeting, NTREG will host a lunch.


Besides good company, you can enjoy cheap eats, because it's $1 burger night from 5:00 p.m. until closing, so you can chow down on a hamburger, turkey burger, or Portobello burger for only a buck. This time, since we anticipate cooler weather, we’re going to meet on the upstairs patio.
