WoWE ~ Inaugural Meeting, March 3rd

Women of Wind Energy ~ Women + Wind = WoWE!

The women at Second Wind Inc. are thrilled to announce the creation of a Boston Chapter of the Women of Wind Energy! With the number of women growing rapidly at Second Wind Inc, and in the wind industry worldwide, we felt it would be a great opportunity to connect with other successful women in the Boston area. The Women of Wind Energy (WoWE) is a nationwide organization with over 500 members since it’s launch in 2005. At the heart of the organization is a mission to “support and encourage the participation and advancement of professional women in the wind energy industry.” As a woman at Second Wind Inc, I am proud to help kick off the Boston Chapter and look forward to our future success!

The WoWE Boston inaugural meeting will be held at Sagra Ristorante on Monday March 3rd @ 630pm. The enthusiastic response from local women has been exciting and we look forward to a huge turnout. Please join us! We will also be holding a raffle to benefit the WoWE Scholarship Fund.

Sagra Ristorante is located on 400 Highland Avenue in Davis Square, Somerville. Sagra is a short walk from the Davis Square red line T stop.

Please RSVP to by February 25th to let us know if you will attend.

Hope to see you there!

Sodar article in February North American Windpower

I must admit to being excited to see my name in print in this month's North American Windpower magazine. Editor Jennifer Delony invited us to write an article on sodar for this month's resource assessment issue, and although it was an educational experience, I was unreasonably thrilled to see the final result in the magazine. It's not online, or I'd link to it, but it is in the print edition, which is a free subscription. The cornerstone of my reputation as a world authority has been set!
