Renewable Energy in Kentucky and Beyond
Every year, Centre College hosts a convocation related to campus sustainability and Centre’s commitment to mitigate climate change. This year we welcome Matthew Partymiller, the General Manager of Solar Energy Solutions (SES), the company that installed solar panels on Chowan during the 2017 summer. Partymiller has led the development of SES since its inception in 2006. He is primarily focused on project implementation and design. Since the inception of SES, Partymiller has installed renewable projects in all four corners of Kentucky and expanded SES into surrounding states. Partymiller has led the company in the design and installation of more than 300 projects, including installations of photovoltaic, solar thermal, and wind renewable energy. In this talk, Partymiller will discuss some of the challenges of renewable energy, from the technological to the political, explaining how Centre’s solar response to carbon emissions is part of a larger pattern here in Kentucky and around the world.
