SOT and Broome County Cornell Cooperative Extension to host Zoom Presentation on Renewable Energy from the Land

Join the NYFOA SOT chapter and the Broome County Cornell Cooperative Extension as they host an online Zoom meeting at 7 PM on Thursday, November 19th. Ed Newhauser will speak on the topic of Renewable Energy From your Land: Wood Fuel to Solar and Wind. Learn some of the efficient ways to harvest wood fuel and the possibilities and cautions you need to know before turning your land into a wind or solar power area.


Individual renewable energy for heating and powering your home can take a variety of forms. One of the most basic forms is wood energy, which can be combined with Timber Stand Improvement (TSI) to improve the quality of your forest and provide domestic heat. It may also be possible to provide lumber with some of the trees removed during TSI. Advances in photovoltaics have made electric generation possible for individual homeowners. Community solar projects have made PV electrical generation possible for people who do not have the physical conditions to install panels. Wind power is possible in select locations in NYS. Heat pump technology for heating and cooling has now made this technology available to individuals. We will explore how these technologies can be used today.
