Solar Knight Scheduled to Speak to Northwest Solar Group

Sir Walt Ratterman will be the guest speaker at the June 18th meeting of the Northwest Solar Group in Tacoma. The meeting will be held at Oscar’s restaurant and begins at 6pm.

Ratterman will be discussing his views on Solar Around the World. A former solar installer on the east coast of the United States, Ratterman has traveled the World with KnightsBridge International, a non-profit relief organization similar to Doctors without Borders, installing solar projects in some of the most remote and dangerous locations on Earth.

Taking solar to the front lines in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Burma, Rwanda and less dangerous places like the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador and India has given Ratterman first hand insight to how the development and implementation of solar technology can aid the developing world, relieve poverty, provide for improved health care and better overall living conditions for communities with few other energy prospects.
