NorCal Solar's Solar Picnic

NorCal Solar hosted their summer-kickoff networking event to show their appreciation to their members and ring in what's looking to be a beautiful and sunny solar season!  A plethora of solar cookers cooked a variety of dishes in the sun, like Jambalaya, Turkey Lasagne, Tuna Casserole & African Rice.  Generous members brought brownies & cookies for dessert, and talented Business Members, Aram Solar catered some delicious tri-tip sandwiches and potato salad.  It was a great day all around, with great food, fun games and music powered by a Solar Suitcase.  If you weren't able to make this fun summer kickoff, sign up to receive email updates from NorCal Solar !
