Solar Electricity . . . In the City! – November 17, 2012

Next up for the Rehabbers Club is an exciting program on solar electricity. Yes you can make this work on your historic home – and get a tax credit to help pay for it!!

This exciting topic will be covered November 17, at 9:30 am when Shannon Ware, founder of Photergy and President of Missouri’s Show Me Solar organization, will present on solar options, installation techniques and available funding.

We’ll meet at and tour the William A. Kerr Foundation Building – St. Louis’ first LEED Platinum green building- located just North of downtown at 21 O’Fallon Street. The building’s sustainable features include solar technology, a wind turbine and a green roof among others. See details on the venue here: http://tmaarchitects.org/williamakerr.html.

This must-see event is free to Rehabbers Club members and $5.00 for guests. Coffee and donuts will be served. Don’t miss it! For more info, or to rsvp, call Stephanie at 314-537-7404.

Next Rehabbers Club Tour is March 24th in SW Garden!

Please join us Saturday March 24th at 9:00 am, for an action-packed tour of four properties in the SW Garden Neighborhood.

We will visit two single-family homes and two multi-family properties, all in process of extensive renovation.

Tour will start at 2019 Alfred, a multi-family being renovated by Jay Willie,

and proceed to

  • 4557 Flad, a four-family project which is utilizing historic tax credits, being developed by Chuck Vilnai
