WOOSTER, Ohio -- The Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI) hosts a talk on “Energy Freedom through Local Solar Co-ops” by Greg Pace, a member of the Clintonville (Ohio) Solar Energy Co-op and a certified photovoltaic installer, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, in Room 30 of ATI’s Skou Hall, 1328 Dover Road, Wooster.

ATI is the two-year degree-granting branch of Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).

The presentation, part of a statewide series sponsored by Green Energy Ohio, will feature creative, non-traditional ways for community groups to finance -- and significantly cut the cost of -- setting up solar energy systems in people’s homes.

Admission is free and open to the public. Parking is free in ATI’s east and west lots.

The event’s co-sponsors also include the Bioenergy and Bioproducts Research Laboratory of the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) and ATI’s Renewable Energy Program. OARDC is CFAES’s research arm.

ATI also will host “Heat-powered Engines: The Future of Renewable Energy and Carbon Sequestration” at 7 p.m. April 15 in the same location as part of the series.

The presentations also will be given in Athens, Worthington and Cincinnati. See the Green Energy Ohio website, http://www.greenenergyohio.org/, for details.
