Off Grid and Emergency Back Up System

Sun Nov 19, 2017, Kortright, GTA, ON

The Off Grid and Emergency Back Up Systems workshop connects the fundamentals of photovoltaic and wind energy production with the components required for back up systems for off-grid systems or emergency back up energy systems for homes.

In the afternoon, participants will assemble the components of a small cabin sized system as a practicum.
