PV Design and Installation workshop in Austin
- View Source
AUSTIN, TEXAS Join Solar Energy International (SEI) for an intensive hands-on Solar Electric Design & Installation workshop at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, Texas to make a positive change for the future. Austin has some of the best renewable energy tax credits in the nation for installing solar photovoltaic on homes and business and the time is ripe to learn how to design and install these systems.
This 5-day workshop is part of SEIs Renewable Energy Education Program. It will take place from April 4th through 9th culminating with a hands-on photovoltaic installation. Austin-based solar business Meridian Energy Systems and the Texas Solar Energy Society are co-sponsors of the workshop. The tuition is $600.
Participants in the Photovoltaic Design & Installation workshop will learn how to use PV technology to produce their own solar electricity. The first portion of the workshop will be spent learning in the classroom, and then participants can actually watch the electrical meter spin backwards after taking part in the hands-on installation.
Along with the hands-on installation, SEIs PV Design and Installation workshop covers system sizing, site analysis, hardware specification and component selection with a strong emphasis on NEC code compliant systems. This workshop is for the beginner who wants to use PV on their home or business and for those seeking employment in the solar industry.
SEI is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help people incorporate renewable
energy into their lives. Based in Carbondale, Colorado, and actively teaching around the
