   Tues Jun 6, 2017, 1-5pm "Solar Overview" & "Solar Economics," 2 hrs each, presented back-to-back, continuing education for engineers, designers, energy practitioners and contractors.  Introduces and describes many local examples of solar, including passive solar, daylighting, solar electricity and solar water heating.  Covers types of collectors, major components, estimation methods for heating and electric, solar rating resources, solar siting and orientation.  Presented for Impact Mgt Svcs, Norwood OH, 513-731-1111, www.ineedimpact.com

   Tues Jun 20, 2017, 1-5pm "Off-Grid Solar PV" & "Rechargeable Batteries" - 2 hrs each, presented back-to-back, 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
