TEDxTucson - Kevin Koch - Innovating Our Way Of Living

The big question of the night, Kevin Koch asked "How do we innovate our way of living?" When we begin to consider living a more sustainable way of life we're confronted with a myriad of difficult choices along the way. Often we make our decisions based on what is most convenient or easy, and avoid the complicated or more expensive choices that lead us to living in better harmony with our natural environment. In this talk, Kevin asked the audience to think about how we live our lives here in Tucson, but his message applies to everyone who seeks to live more sustainably. Kevin Koch, owner of Technicians For Sustainability, has 12 years of experience in the solar energy industry. What's really cool about this Tucson company is the installers often ride bikes to the job, with the equipment towed in trailers! Kevin's background in solar includes NABCEP solar installation certification, installing some of the first permitted grid-tied photovoltaic systems in Tucson, and serving as a lead designer for both commercial and residential solar energy systems. Mr. Koch also serves on a range of committees and councils as a community leader in green energy and is an inspiring speaker. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxTucson, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTucson event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combined to spark deep discussion and connection about sustainability. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
