Congrats to Bill Maclay and NRG Systems

Congratulations to long-term Yestermorrow board member Bill Maclay and his architectural team for having their design for the NRG Systems building in Hinesburg, Vermont selected as the cover photograph for the fall 2007 issue of Northeast Sun. The magazine which is published by the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association is one of our favorites--as are Bill (whose office is constantly helping us with the campus plan and far too frequent printing assistance) and NRG's co-founder David Blittersdorf (who spoke here during our summer lecture series). Congratulations and many thanks to both of you for supporting Yestermorrow and having the collective vision to produce a work environment that not only produces 70% or so of its own power but also supports programs that reduce the collective carbon footprint of those that work in this cutting edge structure.
