Solar PV: Is it for me?

University of Florida Extension in Escambia County is partnering with the UF IFAS Extension in Leon County, SunFarm Energy, and Compass Solar Energy to sponsor a 3-hour primer on solar photovoltaic (PV) [electricity from solar panels]. Remote instructors include solar professionals with Independent Green Technologies, City of Tallahassee Utilities, Talquin Electric Cooperative and the Leon County Office of Sustainability.

You will become conversant with all aspects of solar PV from the financial to the technical. The seminar will include expert insight into trends in the solar industry and local utilities; options for components and installation; and how to calculate energy production and return on investment (ROI) — everything pertinent to helping you decide: “Is solar PV for me?”

After the educational sessions, hands-on demonstrations and information will be available from representatives with Compass Solar Energy and SunFarm Energy.

Friday, March 24th   ●   8:30 am – 12 p.m.

UF IFAS Escambia County Extension Windstorm Building
