Westernmost Rotary Club in the United States

Welcome to the Rotary Club of West Kauai! My name is Liz and I will be your President for two more weeks!
 
We gathered for our meeting today at Aloha N Paradise Gallery in Waimea town. Interestingly enough, a power outage through the whole area encouraged us to gather on the lanai fronting the gallery- which was cool and pleasant. Rotarians and their guests enjoyed pizza and cool beverages and the beautiful art.

 Our guest speaker was the XO of PMRF but since the power was out everywhere, he brought the Skipper and their spouses so we were all able to share Rotary fellowship and some happy dollar collections! We also had a guest from one of our seed corn companies and we are looking forward to seeing these folks regularly!
  
The cool thing was that the whole town could get a peek at a Rotary meeting today. 
 
Capt. Aaron Cudnohufsky gave us an overview of activities at the base and its many activities in support of our schools and community.
Mahalo to Candy Baar and Aloha N Paradise for a most enjoyable Rotary setting!

Side note- our new photovoltaic system passed muster today. Power switched right over to our batteries and the kids didn't even know it was out!

Beautiful art!

Being flexible is important. Just have to make do sometimes.

So, if the power was out how were the pizza's cooked? Were the cold or was the outage very localized?

Good to hear your home power switched over seamlessly! Whoo-hoo!!!

I wonder if your neighbors are now contmplating a photovoltaic system.

The pizzas came from Pizza Hut in Kalaheo- where I work. On the way to Waimea, I saw a brushfire where utility workers had been working on the power poles. Don't know how related those two events are.

PV systems are expensive- my startup system is about $15-$16K. If I can save enough to put another $15K into it next year, we should be able to generate the same amount of power as we are now consuming. Tax credits are about 65% (state+fed) so if I get the full benefit, the net cost to build will end up around $11,000 over 2 years.
Still kinda pricey but it feels good to be able to harness the sun and be one small SOURCE of energy instead of just a consumer.

When will you install air conditioning?

gigi- have some wall AC units in some rooms- but don't use them much.
The upstairs main room has open beam ceilings and photovoltaic roof fans and an open stairway so AC is not practical.
