   Tues Mar 6, 2018, 1-5pm "Off-Grid Solar PV" & "Rechargeable Batteries" - 2 hrs each, presented back-to-back, upto 4 hrs continuing education for engineers, designers, energy practitioners and contractors.  Off-Grid Solar PV begins with how off-grid differs from grid-connected solar, including the increased importance of reducing electricity loads and usage and the fact that batteries are needed for backup power when sunlight is insufficient or unavailable.  Also covered is how to size and choose the major components in off-grid solar setups.  Rechargeable Batteries is an overview of the many types of rechargeable batteries, comparing discharge and recharge preferences as well as operational characteristics.  A short history of batteries is included as well as a review of the language and formulas typically associated with batteries and DC electric systems.  Presented for Impact Mgt Svcs, Norwood OH, 513-731-1111, www.ineedimpact.com

   Tues Mar 27, 2018, 1-7pm "Energy Code Intro" (2 hrs - 1-3pm) & "Energy Code" (4 hrs - 3-7pm) presented back-to-back for upto 6 hrs continuing education for engineers, designers, energy practitioners and contractors.  Energy Code Intro covers energy history leading to development of energy codes, introducing current energy codes for Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana.  Energy Code covers major portions from the IECC code and ASHRAE Standard 90.1, covering commercial and residential sections for HVAC, Electric and Service Hot Water.  Presented for Impact Mgt Svcs, Norwood OH, 513-731-1111, www.ineedimpact.com
