Sustainable Edgewater Seminar Series

From K. Xerxes Steirer, PhD Applied Physics:

As a researcher and teacher at the Colorado School of Mines, my favorite topics to teach are Energy and Sustainability. We all can use the insight from these classes to help make our lives, homes and buildings more comfortable while at the same time saving energy and money!

Along with the sun’s energy, a thin skin surrounding the globe sustains all life on earth. As we think globally, the call to act locally is growing. We can do good for our planet. The best place to start is at home and the best time to begin is now. You may have noticed more folks growing delicious food in their yards, putting solar on their roofs or simply favoring their bikes and trikes over cars and trucks.

Nowadays, sustainability goes beyond reduce, reuse and recycle. I am excited to share this knowledge with you in the Sustainable Edgewater Seminar Series in 2017. Did you know LEDs can pay their cost back in just 1.4 years? Ever wonder whether to put solar on the roof or put that money towards energy efficient heating, insulation or windows?  We will facilitate informative discussions and learn from each other along the way. I will lead the first three seminars and welcome community members to suggest or lead a seminar in the months ahead.

The Sustainable Edgewater Seminar Series will meet in the Edgewater Library from 7 to 8 pm on the third Tuesday of each month. The first seminar, Building Green for Zero Emissions, will be on January 17.  Please contact me at if you want to get involved or have any questions on energy and sustainability. I hope to see you there!
