In the workshop, you will learn how to size a PV system, learn ways to reduce energy consumption, and have a more efficient home or business. The class will cover planning the best location for a PV array for maximum energy production. It will also include details on how to configure stand-alone (off-grid) and grid-tie (utility-connected) systems. 

Learn about quality installations. In hands-on labs, students will learn about wiring sockets and switches. Learn safety throughout. No prior knowledge is needed. The class will then install a system over the second weekend at the Peace Center.

Marlene Brown along with Taiyoko Sadewic will instruct the class. Marlene has worked with Photo-voltaic systems for over 25 years and has installed hundreds of systems in the U.S. and the developing world. She has taught PV classes for over 20 years with her own home being one of the projects. Taiyoko is co-owner of Positive Energy Solar and has also installed hundreds of PV systems.

Choose the two weekend 5-day course, or attend just the first weekend, which does not include the installation portion. The course is now $800 per person for both weekends or $500 for only the first weekend.

Non-profits interested in having a PV system installed as a class project in the future, please call 452-7202.
