SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education & Development Support) will present a FREE Solar Workshop from 7 to 9 PM on Thursday September 22nd at Pike County Public Library Milford Branch, 119 East Harford Street, thanks to a grant from the Greater Pike Community Foundation.
This ‘Solar 101’ course will teach you all about the different types of solar systems, how they work, how to evaluate your home or business for solar, how much it costs, and how to take the next steps. SEEDS will provide information on rebates and incentives, local solar installers and even an option for Do-It-Yourselfers.
Come learn why so many people are interested in going solar!
The session will discuss how the different technologies work, how to calculate financial payback, and installation techniques and concerns. The presenters will show samples of solar equipment and tools. The workshop will also be very helpful to businesses or non-profits who want to lower their energy consumption and/or generating their own electricity.
