MINUTES OF 2007 MEETINGS 

July 16, 2007

The meeting was called to order by Joe Glynn at 7:05 PM

The minutes of the December 2006 meeting were read and approved

Treasurer's Report: None, because the treasurer was recovering from surgery.

Old Business: The liability issues with the wind farm tour have been worked out and this meeting will be scheduled for August or September.

New Business: Our domain registration for sbe2.org has expired. Because of a quirk with our registrar, it will cost us $40.00 to renew during the "grace period" but only $10.00 if we renew afterwards. Since it was unlikely that anyone would try to grab the domain, it was decided to wait until it can be renewed at $10.00. Until then, members can still access the web site at http://www.telcen.com/sbe.

Presentation: Chris Carpenter of Flash Technology gave a presentation on LED replacements for flashing red beacons and obstruction lamps, as well as a split module strobe system. pdf files describing the products and an Excel spread sheet for calculating energy savings and ROI are here
