New Clean Energy Web Site
New Clean Energy Web Site. I’m Greg Martin as Line On Agriculture presents the Harvest Clean Energy Report.
Keeping up with the latest innovations in clean energy can be a daunting task and many times websites devoted to the topic can just get hard to navigate. Clark Gilman is the Program Manager, Harvesting Clean Energy and Climate Solutions says they have recently re-launched their Harvesting Clean Energy web site with lots of changes.
GILMAN: Climate Solutions has recently launched a new Harvesting Clean Energy website. It’s an online community that creates year-round opportunities for people to share in the expertise, the information, the success stories that come out each year at our Harvesting Clean Energy conference.
Gilman says the new site should feature answers to your questions regarding energy projects.
GILMAN: This website is centered around an Ask An Expert technical assistance forum which means I’ve recruited volunteers experts from a wide variety of experience from bankers to electricians who install solar panels. The questions all stay posted up on the website and are a resource that people can browse through and hopefully get inspiration and information to begin their own clean energy project.
The new design of the website is very clean and easily navigated which should be a plus for people looking for information.
GILMAN: I’m hoping that the website is the place to pull together information, success stories and technical information that talks specifically about clean energy for the rural northwest; for the farmers, the food processors, the rural businesses. Information that’s dialed in specifically to our community. The website is an extension of the Harvesting Clean Energy Conference, which we’ll be on our 11th conference this year. It will be in Boise in October and we certainly hope that people will be inspired to attend the conference also and have face-to-face conversations.
In designing a website there are a lot of factors that go into the process.
GILMAN: When we began developing the website there was certainly an interest in capturing the attention of young people and our web designer came up with a site and then those of us who grew up on newspaper took a look at it, it didn’t make a lot of sense to us so we tried to make it a website that has headlines that are clear and hopefully has enough pizazz it still makes sense to young folks as well.
