For those who are interested in renewable energy, the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) is the place for you. There are others which we will talk about but ASES is the hot one - did we just say that?
ASES has been around forever. consequently they have their J-O-B down!. ASES offeres state chapters so one can get involved at the local level, an excellent bi-monthly magazine called "Solar Today", an annual conference which is second only to Solar Power (sponsored by SEPA / SEIA - more later) and is truly why solar is in the center of the renewable buzz. They have a very reasonable membership fee.
