2011 Solar Today, March Cover

Colorado State University has a very special utility/energy engineer on their facilities staff. Carol Dollard. I’ve known Carol for a decade and have always been impressed with her engineering competence, her vision for a sustainable future, and her unique and effective style of working through bureaucratic webs that would trap and immobilize a lesser soul.

Late 2010, Carol kidded me into taking this picture and pitching her story. “Geeze Dan, why did Solar Today put a small 200KW PV system from some other university on their cover, when CSU has a new 5MW system?” Good point! I wound up 50 feet in the air shooting Carol (the red dot in the lower right of this cover).
