September EFF


Sept. 14, 2018 - Social time, 6:30 (snacks welcome) Program, 7:00


In the spirit of 1776, The Solar Patriot aims to recruit ordinary citizens as champions for homegrown, all-American clean energy. If you think that solar power should become America's top energy source, and you'd like to help make it happen, then this is the book you've been waiting for. 

     Even if you don't have solar panels on your own roof, The Solar Patriotwill give you ideas to join the revolution to free America from the tyranny of fossil fuels and make our nation cleaner, safer and more prosperous. Enlist now! 


     Erik Curren, author of The Solar Patriot, is a long-time advocate for clean energy and other solutions to fight climate change. Since 2010 he's run the Curren Media Group, which offers marketing services to solar companies. He's also served on City Council in Staunton since 2012. Erik is a history buff and sees many parallels between America's fight for political freedom in 1776 and today's battle of climate patriots against fossil fuel tyrants for clean energy independence.  Erik and his wife, Lindsay, also a history buff, love exploring Virginia's old houses, restored towns and battlefields. They live in a 1910-era home in downtown Staunton, and have two grown daughters.
