Thanks Craig and welcome T-Reno Solar Workgroup. It's great to see both here. Now that you've created T-Reno Solar your members and our members can INVITE likeminded people from T-Reno Solar and from Transition U.S. to commingle, add further information and links in TEXTBOX as they develop, delve into group issues on the DISCUSSION FORUM, and make quick comments on the COMMENT WALL. The hybrid T-Reno Solar/Transition group even has its own private email list for group announcements. yyyyyy has two members so far -- you and me. I suggest you scan for invitees from our current members and then invite key people from yours. Let's do it! Let us know when you have questions.
