Solar 101:  An Overview of Solar Energy Systems

This workshop discusses the ways that Solar Energy is increasingly becoming a part of everyday life in Pennsylvania.  Participants will learn the various ways in which Solar Energy is captured to generate energy for homes, businesses and remote systems by viewing a passively heated home, a domestic hot water system on a commercial building and various Solar Photovoltaic (PV) applications. 

We’ll discuss the current and future economics of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems and the incentives currently available to make those systems more affordable.  Lastly, we’ll show how PV is deployed, the ecological and national security benefits realized by PV and explain how PV is creating homegrown jobs for designers, installers and even US based manufacturing.  The cost is $20 per person; $25 for couples.
