The Center Co-Director Pliny Fisk was featured in the article “The Winter the Gas was Cut Off to Crystal City," published in December 2012 by the Solar Reflector, Texas Solar Energy Society's online newsletter. The article describes Pliny's work in Crystal City, Texas in the late 1970s. He spearheaded an effort to provide 2,000 solar water heaters to town residents after the local natural gas company cut off their natural gas supply.
