Solar 101 Workshop

Have you wondered if solar is right for your house? If so, join us for Green Needham’s Solar 101, an introduction and guide to residential solar energy for homeowners.

We will explain the technology and terminology of solar PV (photovoltaic) and solar thermal systems, the criteria homeowners should consider before proceeding, and acquisition and financing options (lease versus purchase).

Needham’s new Building Commissioner, David Roche, will review what the Building Department will look for from the homeowner and the installer to ensure a safe and timely installation.

We will also cover the questions that homeowners should ask of installers, and tips from Needham residents who have been through the process.

Following the presentation, several Needham homeowners and their installers will be available for questions and consultation.

Presented in partnership with Needham Community Education, Solar 101 will take place on Wednesday, March 20th from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the Broadmeadow Performance Center.

Registration is available through Needham Community Education. Call 781-455-0400 x235 to register by phone.

The Needham Community Education catalog was mailed to all Needham households in late January. You can find Solar 101 on page 6 of the catalog, in the new “Living Green in Needham” section.
