Solar workshop on Saturday, November 14

“Solar 101”: Solar Basics for the Oak Ridge Homeowner will be held Saturday, November 14th, 2009, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, in the Oak Ridge Public Library Auditorium.  Sponsored by the Oak Ridge Environmental Quality Advisory Board and the City of Knoxville’s Solar America Cities Program, this workshop will provide an overview of the solar technologies that are available for home installation such as solar photovoltaics, solar hot water, solar lighting, solar heating, and passive solar design. It will also provide an introduction to the step-by-step process of “going solar” in your home.

The workshop will review basic incentives and financing options, as well as best practices for hiring qualified installers. Although the workshop is not designed to offer technical or financial guidance to a specific project, it should help homeowners better understand the options and process for pursuing solar technologies.
