Scottsdale’s Green Building series kicks off with a lively discussion and update on rooftop solar, net-metering, evolving solar incentives, milestones and the future of photovoltaics.

The free program will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, at the Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N. Granite Reef Road. RSVPs are not needed.

Two speakers will lead the discussion as participants learn about the revolutionary opportunities made possible by newly affordable solar energy and the rapidly evolving energy transition.

  • Paul Hirt, a sustainability scholar at Arizona State University, will address the solar energy revolution, why solar is coming faster than anyone expected and how it will change our world.
  • Brandon Cheshire from SunHarvest Solar will address the evolving state of solar affairs and demystifying the myths and facts around solar.
