A solar electric workshop just for women. Topics include: basics of electricity; solar site analysis; PV system components; component specification; electrical wiring; safety procedures; tour of PV residences; 2-day actual installation of class-designed 2kW system at an area school campus. Materials included in registration fee: Sandia Lab�s �Stand-Alone Systems� and �Operation and Maintenance� manuals plus a specifically designed class notebook. Registrants are invited to stay together at the Austin Youth Hostel, located in a lovely park setting on the river, where the class work will be held. Dormitory style lodging with kitchen privileges has been arranged for $16.50 per person per night. Lunch is included in the registration fee, some of which will be prepared in solar ovens on site.
Why women only? Many women have little or no electrical experience. Due to women�s lack of training in technology, they may be weary of attending a coed course with men who have grown up using power tools. Providing a supportive learning atmosphere, an all women workshop may help overcome the social, political and economic barriers that keep some women from entering the PV field.
