OREGON, Ill.—Are you interested in the possibility of installing a solar electric system on a cabin or isolated building? If so, you might be interested in a class the Illinois Renewable Energy Association (IREA) will offer near Oregon, Ill.
Saturday, Oct. 24, a DC Solar Electric class will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 1230 E. Honey Creek Road, Oregon. It will provide an overview of a small DC photovoltaic system, and include how to design, assemble and install a system, components of a system, battery options and maintenance.
