Jean is an active member of the non-profit group Hillsboro Area Renewable Energy Initiative (HAREI). HAREI is an all-volunteer organization that provides education to the community with regard to renewable energy technology available for homes, small businesses, and non-profits in Hillsboro County, NH. HAREI also provides assistance and group discounts for individuals who want to install solar systems themselves.
