          Mary Montague gave us an update on the PhotoVoltaic Guide.  Our guide is near final draft.  Following a local PV class Robert suggested that the local chapter look at creating a regional standard.  We started with Portlandís guide as a template.  Michael Morter indicated that the state had reviewed Portlandís document.  Mary stated that the guide would be e-mailed out to the members for all to review and make comments. This document would be for Southern Oregonís jurisdictions to use and handout at the counter.  E-mail your comments to Mary Montague by January, 2009.
