  • Faculty and students from the Department of Engineering Science at Sonoma State University participated in the first Pathway to Clean Energy event in Santa Rosa Downtown, on June 20, 2011. This event sponsored by Solar Sonoma County. Over 70 solar and energy efficiency vendors, local green businesses, and training institutions participated.

    Solar Energy and Efficiency Fair

    In this event, Connor Rutten, SSU high school summer intern from Maria Carillo high school, displayed his project, a portable solar energy power station. This project was supervised by Dr. Ali Kujoori and Dr. Farid Farahmand from the Department of Engineering Science at Sonoma State University. Conner demonstrated how a solar power station operates, charges batteries, and power up home appliances.
