If you want to see what I do at work, learn about raccoons, and see me climb out of a dumpster, check out my first ONSC Live! Enjoy!

Today is the last day of service for our three Arkansas Energy Corps members. We thank them for their year of service, as they have all done incredible work in their communities. Also, we welcome Evan Harper to Montana as he just accepted a Montana Energy Corps position in Helena with the Department of Environmental Quality!

Dan, Kate, and Evan gathered in Little Rock on 8.14.15 for their end of service event. Members went on a bike tour of North Little Rock, toured a non-profit bike recyclery, toured two LEED certified buildings, as well as a community garden managed by the Arkansas Garden Corps program.

Energy Corps members in both Arkansas and Montana participated in end of service events last week; bicycling in the heat, teaming up with other AmeriCorps programs in service events, and celebrating their achievements this year. Stay tuned for photos later this week!

Last year, the United States brought online as much solar energy every three weeks as it did in all of 2008, and the solar industry added jobs 10 times faster than the rest of the economy. And since the beginning of 2010, the average cost of a solar electric system has dropped by 50 percent.

Isn’t this like environmental Christmas for you?” I laughed and agreed. As someone who serves for an organi…

Read about Dane’s transition from winter to spring in the biking world: http://www.energycorps.org/…/springing-biking-forward-in-f…/

Read about Evan’s social media experience as an AmeriCorps member:http://www.energycorps.org/blog/default/social-media-woes/

I’ve never been great at using social media. Sure, I have a Facebook and a Twitter account and I’ll occasionally post things on them but it’s hardly an everyday (or even weekly) thing for me. So, of course, one of the things that I would be asked to do in my service term is build and manage a social…

"Thank you so much to Beta Theta Pi at the University of Arkansas! On March 14th, 24 members volunteered with Energy Corps in the rain to help distribute over 50 energy and weatherization kits to Fayetteville residents! We couldn't have done it without you!
