Get Schooled On Solar
Both the Homeowner Solar Class (HSC) and Solar Connection Events are non-technical, easy-to-understand FREE sessions that teach you about the California Solar Initiative (CSI), available rebates and how to "go solar."
The HSC classes last about 60 minutes, while the Solar Connection Events consist of a 40-minute presentation followed by a chance to meet solar contractors to help you determine your home's solar potential.
These sessions are FREE, although due to limited space, pre-registration is necessary.
To attend, you may register online or call 1-866-970-9221.
