The class introduces students to the specialized vocabulary of solar electricity plus how to harness the sun's energy to pump your well, power part or all of your house or small business, save money on household energy expenses, and make your electric meter spin backwards or remove it all together.
Reportedly, the course is geared to present solid technical information with real-life examples, and is described as a wide-ranging, fact-filled, introductory course.
The five-week class will meet on Thursday evenings at the New Mexico State Engineer’s Office beginning October 24th and running through November 21st. A field trip to some local solar installations is scheduled for Saturday, November 23rd.
No college credit is earned through the course.
Enrollment is now open and only 12 participants will be accepted.
The course costs $50 to cover books and handouts.
