The once booming solar panel industry has hit some difficult times. According to a report from Common Dreams, supply has exceeded demand, which has resulted in factory closures and a loss of jobs. Four years ago, with surging energy prices and a looming recession, hundreds of solar panel manufacturing plants were built to meet rising demand. Now with a weakened economy and a cheap supply of natural gas, only a handful of solar panel manufacturers remain profitable.While solar panels, or photovoltaic energy as its known to industry insiders, is struggling, the market for solar thermal energy remains steady.

program date: 
Wed, 12/07/2011

Ten Years That Shook the City: San Francisco 1968-78 is A collection of first-person and historical essays spans the people’s history of San Francisco in the tumultuous decade from 1968, the year of the San Francisco State College strike, to 1978 and the twin traumas of the Jonestown massacre and the assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk. This volume provides a broad look at the diverse ways those ten years shaped the world we live in today. From community gardening to environmental justice, gay rights and other identity-based social movements, anti-gentrification efforts, neighborhood arts programs and more, many of the initiatives whose origins are described here have taken root and spread far beyond San Francisco.
