The installation of solar panels on historic district buildings in Portsmouth is currently under debate. At issue is whether or not those panels will be visible to the public affecting the character of those buildings. Dan Weeks of Revision Energy discusses that and other issues that have caused New Hampshire to be behind other states in solar installations. Podcast producer Roger Wood interviews him. 

Dan Weeks got his start in clean energy as a teen member of the award-winning ConVal Solar Race Car Team in Peterborough, NH. Although solar-powered racing wasn’t breaking any records in the 1990s, the cars were early proof that solar could be a convincing alternative to fossil fuels. Two decades later, he proudly powers his well-insulated home with a 5.5-kilowatt rooftop solar array and drives a speedy Chevy Bolt, charged by the sun. He is ReVision Energy’s Vice President of Business Development.

Dan and his wife, Dr. Sindiso Mnisi Weeks, are the proud parents of a little boy and girl. A graduate of Yale and Oxford, Dan and his family enjoy reading, hiking, traveling, and playing music in their church band.
