Renewable Energy Series – Solar Panel Workshop
Saturday, September 27
Are you interested in a simple and easy way to lower your carbon footprint or provide some electricity to a backwoods site? Bob Kildea, of Home Energy Insight, will lead you in building your own portable photovoltaic system (solar panel). The system includes a 15 watt solar panel that charges a battery, which in turn is used to power appliances through an inverter. All supplies for the system are provided as part of the workshop. The portable solar system that you will build can provide enough energy to power a small TV or computer, power tools, or other appliances that use no more than 400 watts.
The cost of the workshop is $305 for members of Pierce Cedar Creek Institute and $335 for non-members. Pre-registration and payment are required. To register for the workshop call: (269) 721-4190. The workshop is limited to 12 people.
