Lunchtime Learning: Be Ready For Zero Net Energy
Feb 21st, 12:00 -1:00 pm 

We are moving toward a building standard of energy efficiency, reaching for "net-zero" energy consumption. This is not only the right thing to do in terms of environmental sustainability, but will also reduce your clients' energy expenses for the lifetime of the building.
What does it mean to be net-zero and how can we be proactive in preparing a building to reach this goal?
During this Learning session, Brighten Solar Co. will update members on the latest solar trends and how to manage customers' expectations regarding solar and battery backup systems. We will focus on what you need to know, which questions you need to ask your clients and which considerations you need to have in order to design solar friendly buildings.

1 AIA Learning unit and credentialing will be given upon completion of this training.

Lunch is provided. The event is free for AIA members and $15 for non members
