DIY solar PV workshop for low income groups
31 Aug 13
Free to low income groups
This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
Demand Energy Equality is running a DIY solar PV workshop aimed at introducing low-income groups to energy issues and empowering people to begin taking energy into their own hands.
In the workshop participants will learn how to make a solar panel that will power a 12v system, ideal for charging phones, laptops and off-grid lighting. We'll look at the basics of electricity and attempt to demystify it. We'll also explore the place of solar power in the UK, the place of new 'extreme' energy sources and home energy in general.
The workshop is free for low-income groups. More workshops will be run soon.
If you are not on a low income but are interested in attending a future workshop please contact Lynne: email@example.com or call: 07588 258503.
