About the presenters:
Malcolm Brown, a commissioner of Hull's Light Department, is a retired Philosophy Professor from Brooklyn College. Over the past several years he has been instrumental in stimulating the community wind power movement in eastern Massachusetts, and this year has begun working on a project in Liberty NY. He and his wife recently founded the Catskill Mountain Institute, a renewable energy think-tank located in Jeffersonville, NY.
Andrew Stern is an electrical engineer who studied at Worcester Polytechnic Institute where he led his school to victory in the 1600 mile solar vehicle competition, the GM SunRaycer. Andrew hand built the solar array and battery storage system for the vehicle.
