On May 21, Raíces Cultural Center’s EcoCulture program held an Introduction to Solar Energy workshop as part of our Sustainable Living Workshop Series. This workshop followed our Intro to Seed Saving workshop, and taught participants basic principles about how solar energy technology works-including both off-grid and grid-connected systems, the diverse range of applications for solar and other renewable energies, and the wide varieties of opportunities to create green jobs, including locally owned solar community coops and smaller, local businesses. Workshop presenter Laura Waldman, of Sun Blue Energy, also went over some of the upcoming advances in the solar industry and how to identify sites that would make sense for solar energy installations. Participants were able to ask questions and dialogue about solar technology and its many applications. Raíces Cultural Center would like to thank Laura Waldman for sharing her knowledge with us. We look forward to working more together in the future!
The Sustainable Living Workshop Series is co-sponsored by Sustainable Highland Park and funded by Highland Park’s Park Partners Grant Program as well as by individual donations. For a full workshop schedule visit the Sustainable Living Workshop Series Info Page.
