On our show for July 31st, host Richard Mabion will speak with Kent Rowe and Jennifer Connelly.  Kent is an Executive Committee member of the Kansas Chapter of Sierra Club, State Energy Chair, and Conservation Chair of the Wichita Chapter. He is a co-founder of Society of Alternative Resources which was instrumental in garnering an Executive Proclamation establishing City of Wichita’s Sustainability Integration Board.

Kent is a frequent writer for the Kansas Chapter of the Sierra Club Waypoints publication and lectures to groups in topics on sustainability, renewable energy, and microgrid electrification.

The growth of solar in the United States provides a tremendous opportunity to address some of the greatest challenges faced by lower-income communities: the high cost of housing, unemployment, and pollution.  At this time, we cannot fail to calculate the need for all citizens to have shelter which protects from ravages of record-breaking temperatures.  Solar can provide long-term financial relief to families struggling with high and unpredictable energy costs.  Solar can provide living-wage jobs in an industry where the workforce has increased 168% over the past seven years, and solar can provide a source of clean, local energy sited in communities that have been disproportionately impacted by traditional power generation.

This discussion will educate listeners about how easy this is to do and encourage us all to GET STARTED!

We at EcoRadio KC are glad to encourage awareness and protection of our world.  Our goal is to ensure our listeners are aware of how we can create a sustainable present for a sustainable future!

This will be a great radio hour!


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can about the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
