Introduction to Photovoltaics
7pm to 9pm, Thursday April 11
Univ of Idaho Integrated Design Lab
306 S. 6th Boise (6th and Myrtle)
We are blessed with terrific annual solar resource here in the Treasure Valley. Residential photovoltaic (PV) electrical systems can provide much of the yearly electrical energy for many homeowners. We’ll start with why PV systems make sense for the environmentally conscious homeowner. We will explain how PV systems work. We will cover system size, location, and orientation rules of thumb. We will explore PV technology: PV panels, system design, and inverters. We will talk about Net Metering and the changes proposed by Idaho Power. We will take a look at residential PV as an investment and close with some things to remember.
Thanks to these series sponsors:
Renewable Energy Solutions
Snake River Alliance
And special thanks to the University of Idaho Integrated Design Lab for the venue.
