Solar Training & Volunteer Opportunity: Free Workshop on How to Install PV Systems

Join others who are interested in helping save the environment one rooftop at a time. 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-footprint 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 and get hands-on experience. 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 408-246-8478.  More info available at sunwork.org/volunteerquestions.
