Living with the sun is fun! You can take a hot shower every day using free energy from the sun. Learn how-to at Crestone Solar School’s upcoming free solar workshop funded by a Saguache County 2015 sales tax grant award.
Living with the sun is a 21st century reality. Why not take the opportunity to learn how to do it? You can get free energy from brother sun to run an electric ice-maker in the summertime (ask Ed!) In winter you can harness that big furnace in the sky to provide most of your home’s heating needs with free radiant fuel coming down to the earth from the sun. And Federal Tax Credits of 30% are available for one more year to help you pay for your solar dream. We are a solar civilization.
Colorado Sunworks (Paul Shippee’s solar design, consulting and building company) and Crestone Solar School (a division of Colorado Sunworks) has teamed up with Saguache County via a generous sales tax grant award to provide free solar training on the weekend of September 11-13, 2015.
This is a rare opportunity to learn both the theory and the nuts & bolts of solar technologies – both solar thermal for home heating & domestic hot water and PV (photovoltaics).
Hands-on demonstrations, solar home tours and plenty of solar technology instruction, including take-home workbooks, will be valuable parts of this special weekend workshop.
Paul Shippee, the presenter, has been teaching and training people in solar applications for more than 30 years. With a degree in Civil Engineering he is an award-winning solar designer, engineer, consultant and builder. He has designed and built every kind of passive solar home and installed many active solar heating systems in Boulder, Larimer, Chaffee and Saguache Counties over the years.
