Solar and Energy Storage Training

February 9, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

For each Napa resident, over 90% of your greenhouse gas emissions are related to your home and your vehicles.  Oddly, you can use those two emitters to reverse the climate change trend. We are looking for volunteers who can help us transform residential homes with the power of solar.

If you want to do this for your own home, business or want to be an agent of change, we can help educate you and enable you to educate others.  We will also provide you with hands on tools so you can help others get this done.

Topics we will cover:

  • What is solar and energy storage?
  • How important is it to climate change?
  • How does it work?
  • How working together we can make more of an impact!
  • Step by Step Actions to Make Solar/Storage Happen
  •   Ideal opportunities
  •   Intake Sheet
  •   Data from PG&E
  •   Questions and Answers
  •   Engaging a Contractor
  •   Customer follow up
  •   Tracking Success & Failure

We have all the technology to integrate your home with solar, a battery system and an electric vehicle to eliminate virtually all your emissions.  This is also now cost competitive.  What we lack is the political will and the regulatory framework, but that WILL come in time.

Although you can start riding a bike, walking, using public transportation and obtaining an electric vehicle (we know Tesla and Nissan have the software already installed to integrate with a home energy system) to enable the transportation side of this, this training is focused on the solar and energy storage that will help revolutionize our production and use of energy.

Solar and energy storage for a home or a business can do the following:

  • Eliminate emissions from a building
  • Reduce the need for electric grid upgrades
  • Eliminate the need for natural gas
  • Create savings for the home or business owner
  • If purchased, create Federal tax avoidance for the owner
  • Provide power when the grid goes down
  • Sell clean power back to the grid
  • Provide power when it is needed most by dispatching from the batteries

As stated, this is a huge contribution to the solution, but it is also a large step with many details.  How does one get started?
