Join TalkSolar host Beth Bond as she interviews Ralph Velasquez, NewWind out of Nashville, Tennessee about their new way to maximize solar on your roof.
Ralph has been involved in the roofing and building industry since 1978 and renewable technologies since 1999 .In his career, he has re-roofed millions of square feet in the Industrial, Commercial, Institutional and Governmental sectors all over North America. His passion for sustainability was formed from his early ideals of stewardship, minimalism and legacy, sharpened by five years in the late 80's and early 90's, working in sub-sahara Africa.
Ralph is one of the industry's early innovators in the green roof industry. He developed the GreenSave calculator, the green roof industry's first financial benefit calculator and was part of the ASTM sub-committee that wrote the first five national ASTM standards for green roofs. He completed the first ever green roof installation on a Presidential Library, with the completion of the William Jefferson Clinton Library in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2008 and an award winning design on the National Institutes of Health, in Bethsesda, MD Involved in distributed solar since 2008, Ralph developed over 3.5 mW of rooftop solar during the throngs of the great recession, from 2008-2010,
From 2010-2012, Ralph was the Executive Director for Sustainability for a global roofing manufacturer, responsible for all policy and strategic sustainability initiatives, world-wide. In late 2012, Ralph, along with his wife, formed Ark Investments to focus on micro investment opportunities in sustainability, in rural and local communities. To date investments have been made in sustainable animal husbandry, music and land development. Earlier this spring, Ralph joined NWES, as the Sr. Director of Business Development to again pursue the idea of rooftop solar, this time with a ROI financial focus.

We're talking with DecorGirl Lisa Smith about her roof garden to find out the real-deal of putting a garden on top of your house.
The romance and earth-friendly appeal of a roof garden can bump up against practicality of installation, maintenance, and those little surprises that we haven't yet thought of yet.
So last month, when we saw a blog post about living with a roof garden, we were hooked. We've always been fascinated by garden roofs, and had to know more.
And we're looking forward to talking with the blogger Lisa, who is an interior designer and artist who shares the real world of interior design on her blog DecorGirl.net.
"A roof with living plants does require weeding about once or twice a season, because birds like to “drop” seeds of unintended plants. A once a year sprinkle with season long fertilizer helps to keep the plants looking luscious." --Lisa, DecorGirl

Lois Lerner pleading the 5th even though there's not a SMIDGEN of corruption in the IRS? Uh-huh.
Pampered, spoiled and self-centered teens suing their parents for refusing to indulge their every whim while living UNDER their parents' roofs?

$10.10 Minimum Wage Would Actually Create New Jobs: Study
Raising the minimum wage would help the working poor and give the entire economy a boost, a new analysis finds.
If the minimum wage rose to $10.10 per hour, as Senate Democrats and President Barack Obama propose, 27.8 million workers would see their wages go up as a direct or indirect result of the boost, according to the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning think tank. These workers would take home about $35 billion in additional wages and they would probably spend it, as low-income people living with little financial cushion cushion tend to do.
Former president Bill Clinton is a major advocate of cool roofs. Recently he wrote: “Every black roof in New York should be white; every roof in Chicago should be white; every roof in Little Rock should be white. Every flat tar-surface roof anywhere! In most of these places you could recover the cost of the paint and the labor in a week.”
