Join with others who are interested in helping cut carbon emissions. This free, 3-hr. training workshop will teach you the basics of electricity, solar technology, the installation of rooftop photovoltaic (PV) systems, & safety.
The workshop is offered by SunWork (SunWork.org), a small 501(c)(3) nonprofit that installs rooftop PV systems on low-electricity-using homes -- those that use less than $100/month of electricity on average (excluding electric-vehicle usage). SunWork also does installations for other nonprofits, such as churches and homeless shelters. Its mission is to make solar energy more available and affordable to these two markets where the economics are generally not as favorable.
SunWork is more affordable for homeowners and nonprofits because of its cadre of trained volunteers who help install rooftop systems under the direction of SunWork's professional Project Leads. Once volunteers take the 3-hr. training, they're eligible to participate in SunWork installations. No prior experience of any type is needed.
The workshop is free, but registration is required. To register, or for more information, visit sunwork.org/events or call 805-229-1250. More info available at sunwork.org/volunteerquestions.
