      That's great! I hope that you will be able to make it to the meeting and
      share your experiences.

      Hello HREG...

      I have some exciting news to share!

      I have just finished a Solar Energy Workshop in Nicaragua with this great
      organization called Grupo Fenix (www.grupofenix.org). Six of us from the
      States came down to collaborate with this Nicaraguen-based group to
      implement and promote solar energy projects in rural communities. In the 2
      weeks we were here, we installed a solar panel at a church, helped build
      solar cookers, learned about the theory about photovoltaics and how solar
      cells and modules work, had a workshop on hydro-electricity, and we even
      made our own personalized solar-powered battery chargers!
      They offer the program in January and in August. The exciting part is that
      it is completely grassroots, sustainable, and it´s growing!
      You should check it out.

      Hopefully I will be at the next HREG meeting, so maybe I can take
      pictures... or if anyone is interested I can e-mail them to you.

      Thank you,
