Our own August Goers to teach solar thermal course at PG&E's Pacific Energy CenterOctober 12th, 2012
Luminalt's VP of Engineering August Goers will be teaching a free course on commercial solar thermal systems at PG&E's Pacific Energy Center on Tuesday, November 8th from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. This all day class will cover key aspects of large-scale solar water heating systems for commercial applications. The course, co-taught by Pacific Energy Center's director Pete Shoemaker and seasoned industry expert John Grose, will cover assessing potential clients, site analysis, system sizing and design, and financials. They will highlight concepts and technology that differentiate these larger systems from residential ones, such as recirculation loops, handling and location of storage, and access issues. Using a variety of case studies, they will walk through the process from bid through installation and commissioning.
They recommend that students have a strong basic understanding of solar water heating systems, so if you're just beginning to explore installing solar hot water for your own business or multi-family residential building, feel free to Contact Us with any questions. To sign up, please visit the event page at PG&E's Training site.
The California Solar Initiative (CSI) is currently offering a variety of rebates to homes, businesses, and multi-family residences to install solar hot water. Learn more at CSI's website, or Request a Quote to learn about your options.
