Solar Power 101

Thursday, April 11, 6:30 – 8:30pm

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County Educational Center, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca

What are photovoltaics? What is solar thermal? How do they work and what incentives and rebate programs are available so I can put them on my house?

If you’ve been asking some of these questions, come find the answers at this introductory presentation. Anne Stork, an environmental studies professor at Ithaca College who supplements her home power with solar panels, and Guillermo Metz, Green Building and Renewable Energy Program Coordinator at CCETC, who lives off the grid with solar and wind, will give an overview of solar electric and water-heating systems and try to answer all your questions about putting solar power to work for you.

$10 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away. For more information and to register, contact Guillermo Metz at gm52@cornell.edu or 272-2292.
