TSU is near and between Route 59 and I-45 south of Houston. From I-45, take
the SCOTT STREET exit and head west about a mile. You will see a Burger
King on the right - turn right there onto CLEBURNE STREET. Drive about 1/2
mile and you will see the campus on the left.
The School of Technology is on the north edge of campus. Proceeding on
Cleburne Street you will pass a few cross streets until you get to a light
(campus ends here) - this is ENNIS STREET- turn left. You should then see
the School of Technology on the left - turn left ahead of the building - and
you should see the ground-mounted array of solar pv panels. Park near the
panels, which are near the Solar Lab and look for signs to room 225

- Hello HREGers,
The meeting on 10/27 sounds interesting and I hope everyone will attend. Sorry I can't be there as I will be on a final campaign swing through East Texas with events at Lufkin, Tyler, Nacogdoches, and Texarkana.
Hope everyone remembers to vote on Tuesday 11/5. The voters guide put out by the non-partisan League of Women Voters is now available at your local library and lots of other places. Hope you will study it carefully and vote for the best qualified candidates, including friends of clean, renewable energy, of course :-) .
You can also find lots of good stuff at the LWV website at www.dnet.org. Type in your zip code and you can find information on every candidate who will be on your ballot provided by the candidates themselves. And of course early voting is in progress now. Don't fail to vote for the things you believe in. It's important.
