Solar Workshop with Jeff Tobe from Solar Energy International

Last week we were all back in the classroom to do some learning!

the disruptive students

Jeff Tobe had come to teach us some basics about solar energy. We discussed what the options were for going off grid and being tied to the grid. As well we covered the basic electrical knowledge needed to size a system for your needs.

In the afternoon we headed outside to play with some solar panels, putting into practice what we had just learned.

In my past I have been somewhat of an electronics geek, so loved relearning this info, with a new spin towards sustainability. It’s like my old and new worlds colliding! I shall definitely be learning more about this subject!

Thanks Jeff!
