PV enthusiasts from MIT and the Boston Area braved inclement conditions last Thursday for the third PV Social of 2007. Despite the snowstorm that shut down (yes, closed) MIT at 2pm, Dave Danielson managed to have the Muddy Charles re-opened at 5:45pm for the event. (Talk about clout!) With fire in the hearth, pizza and beverages passed around, and a good cross section of students, professionals, and industry folks present, discussions sprung up about silicon sourcing, factory planning, supply chain management, and the latest new ideas being developed at MIT and area universities, and expectations of big things to come for PV at MIT.
The presentation by the Solar7 folks of their solar house on the Washington Mall is postponed until our next social in February.
