June 18-20: The Northwest EcoBuilding Guild is sponsoring a 3 day Solar Photovoltaic Design and Installation Class.  This class will present how to design, and install residential-sized, code compliant, battery-less and battery-based grid-tied PV systems.

This class will provide a basic overview of PV systems including: system components, site analysis, PV module criteria, mounting solutions, safety and commissioning.  Participants will learn the fundamentals of sizing a grid-tied system, battery banks, wire sizing, and grounding.

Additionally, participants will gain hands on experience as they help install a 1.6 KW grid-tied system on a residential home.  Participants may install racks, panels, disconnects, inverter and meter base, conduit and wiring.
