June 10, 2021


Are you considering solar energy for your business? Kaskaskia College is sponsoring a free virtual workshop on Thursday, June 17th, at 3 p.m. The event will feature a panel of professionals that recently assisted Kaskaskia College with installing a solar grid that powers the Agricultural Education Center on the main campus of Kaskaskia College. The project was made possible with a grant from the Illinois Green Economy Network.

The workshop will allow interested organizations and individuals to learn the steps necessary and things to consider when looking at a transition to solar energy.

Our panel participants include:
• Mark Ritter, P.E., LEED AP from WRF Engineers, with over 20 years of design and management experience.
• Craig Pals, Founder and Vice President of Tick Tock Energy, a 28-year veteran of renewable energy and efficiency.
• Troy Acree, construction project manager for Tick Tock Energy.
• Ross Calliott, Vice President of Operations for Affordable Gas & Electric, with experience working with municipalities, businesses, schools, and other organizations to reduce energy costs via negotiated rates, conservation measures, and on-site generation.
• Ahren Langhauser, Technical Services Supervisor for Clinton County Electric Cooperative, provides oversight for all distributed generation interconnections for the cooperative.

This diverse panel of energy, engineering, and construction professionals will provide insight and guidance for participants considering a solar project. Kaskaskia College is pleased to offer this virtual workshop free of charge to assist organizations with the process of transition to renewable energy.
