Are you interested in learning how to use an abundant resource - sunlight - to benefit financially and fight climate change at the same time?  Do you wish to learn about the Hi Tech solar water heaters, photo voltaic panels and solar hot air heating systems?  Do you wish to learn how and where to purchase solar equipment at wholesale prices?  Or maybe you are just interested in learning where to get plans on how to build solar heated water troughs or bird baths that don’t freeze in winter.  Although this class is listed as a solar energy course, it also covers a handyman’s guide to lowering your energy footprint, resulting in savings on both your heating and electrical bills.  This course is not aimed at the wealthy, but at the middle and low income homeowner who is looking to save some money and help the planet at the same time.  The course covers both Hi Tech equipment and the construction of homemade solar panels, battery banks, solar hot water heaters, solar hot air systems, solar ovens, and solar distillation units.  So if you are interested in saving hundreds of dollars a year by learning how to build a thirty gallon solar batch hot water heater out of recycled parts for under $100 or where you can buy a state-of-the-art evacuated tube water heating system, then this course is for you.
