Off Grid and Emergency Back Up System    Sun May 7, 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. The topics covered in this course include charge controllers, batteries, inverters and generators, and are applicable to battery-based back-up power systems. In the afternoon, participants will assemble the components of a small cabin sized system as a practicum.
