This hands-on class is ideal for those planning to live off-grid, anyone wanting to install their own battery power system, and preppers wanting electrical power long after the grid goes down or following an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event. Jeff Yago provides hands-on instruction using name-brand solar inverters, charge controllers, and batteries. Attendees learn basic D.C wiring as well as wiring safety for solar arrays and battery banks. Some basic knowledge of electrical terms and hand tools will be helpful, but this introductory solar class is limited to working with low-voltage D.C. power systems and appliances. Participants also receive a copy of Yago's book Lights On.
A ticket is required to participate in select Hands-On workshops. Space is limited. To guarantee your spot we recommend ordering an advance pass. A small number of passes will be available to purchase at the event.
Limited to 60 participants. All extended workshops are nonrefundable and nontransferable.
