Pacific Energy Center – Classes

Well I just finished my first two-hour long class from the Pacific Energy Center. I took a class title “Solar Basic for Residential Customers” and taught by Pete Shoemaker. This was my first time doing an over-the-internet class. I listened to audio on my cell phone and chatted and watched the slides via the web on my computer.

It allowed me to chat with some of the other web-based people and I ended up coming away with a few e-mail addresses. Some useful links I acquired while in the class:

A map of solar activity around San Francisco:
A site connecting consumers to renewable energy professionals:
Enphase Energy – Micro-inverters:

When Pete installed his home solar system, he got together with neighbors and they saved money by bulk-buying their system components. I am hoping to do some energy designs for relatives (hint hint family!).
