Residents of the Sunshine State will have a chance to learn more about solar energy during the September monthly lecture at the Marine Discovery Center.

George Winsten, an environmental science student at Stetson University, will discuss the merits of solar energy at the September lecture. Winsten also works locally as a solar specialist at Solar-Fit.

The lecture will be held Thursday, Sept. 21, starting at 6 p.m., and will be hosted by the Marine Discovery Center, located at 520 Barracuda Boulevard in New Smyrna Beach.

The term “solar energy” is used to describe the process of harnessing the sun’s energy to create electricity and to heat water. Considered a renewable energy resource, solar energy may also be used to heat swimming pools and to power outdoor lighting, RVs and boats.

The lecture is open to the public at no charge and no reservations are required.
