Investors and entrepreneurs discuss solar power

Although solar power is more expensive than wind power, and less efficient, I'm always surprised by the amount of news I find on solar compared to wind. Perhaps because people can put it on their roofs in the city, unlike a turbine, or because of it's popularity in CA where so much renewable energy is movin' and shakin'.

On November 16, a panel of solar power experts will discuss emerging investment opportunities as part of the Coronado Venture Forum (CVF). Formed 12 years ago, CVF brings investors and entrepreneurs together to discuss issues and opportunities across many sectors. But with global warming concerns heating up and interest in alternative energy growing, CVF decided to address the renewable energy sector at it's bimonthly meeting in Albuquerque, NM.

Speakers include Bill Lese of Braemer Energy Ventures, physicist Ben Luce, and Advent Solar Inc. President and CEO Rusty Schmit.
