Renewable energy classes to be offered April 14, May 5
OREGON, Ill. — Are you concerned about energy bills? Thinking of building or remodeling? Thinking of installing a PV or wind system for home use? These classes, offered by the Illinois Renewable Energy Association (IREA), could be for you.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, April 14, a Wind Workshop will be offered. Participants will learn how a wind turbine works and how to install one. Weather-permitting, a functioning home wind turbine will be taken down, disassembled and reassembled.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 5, a Hands-on PV class will be held. Participants will have actual hands-on experiences with solar panels designed for a home installation and assemble the entire installation to be ready for use at the end of the day.
Suggested contributions for the classes are $40 for non-IREA members (which includes membership) and $20 for members.
Both classes will be at 1230 E. Honey Creek Road, Oregon, Ill.
Pre-registration is essential. To register or for more information, e-mail email@example.com or phone (815) 732-7332.
