Curious about solar energy? Interested in helping with rooftop installations as a volunteer? Or are you thinking of putting solar on your home? If any of these is the case, please attend either or both of the two free workshops being offered on Nov 4 in San Luis Obispo by SunWork Renewable Energy Systems (sunwork.org):

- Nov 4 (Sat), 12:45 - 2pm, GOING SOLAR WORKSHOP (for homeowners considering solar)
To register for either or both workshops go to sunwork.org/events. For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 408-246-8478. Lunch will be provided for both workshops. No prior experience of any type is needed, but registration is required.
SunWork is a small nonprofit that installs rooftop PV systems for low-electricity-using homeowners -- those who use less than $100/mo on average (excluding electric-vehicle usage). SunWork also does installations for other nonprofits, such as churches, homeless shelters, etc. Its mission is to make solar energy more available and affordable to these markets which are often overlooked by for-profit installers. At the same time, SunWork provides training and real-world rooftop volunteer experience for those looking for green-collar jobs and those who simply want to help change the world one rooftop at a time.
SunWork is more affordable for homeowners and nonprofits because of its cadre of trained volunteers who help install rooftop systems under the direction of the professional Project Leads. Once volunteers take the 3-hr. training, they're eligible to participate in SunWork's installations and get hands-on experience.
