Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know everyone, that the first of The Evergreen Institute's 2011 workshops — "Home Energy Efficiency" — is scheduled for January 15, 2011. The price has been reduced to encourage more people to attend. This course will help you reduce your utility bill and will save you thousands of dollars in the coming years. It's vital for anyone interested in installing a PV system for themselves or a client. 

This year, we are offering a brand new course that should be very helpful to anyone interested in solar electricity, "Electricity, Electrical Wiring, and The National Electric Code" on January 29th. The price has been reduced to encourage more people to attend. This is essential to anyone who wants to install their own system or become a professional installer.

Finally, on January 30th, I'm offering Basic PVs: An Introduction to Solar Electricity. We're getting a lot of interest in this course, but there's still room for more. This is an excellent course, that offers some of the best training you will ever get. In addition to the lectures, you will view two different operating solar electric systems at our facility, system components, and all types of modules.  

TEI also installed two solar hot water systems and a wind turbine on a 126-foot tower later year. Come take a look at them too. 

 Sign up today and take advantage of the extended early bird specials!

Hope to see you soon.
