Description

Conduit Bending Workshop

GRID Alternatives Bay Area is excited to be joining our neighbors for a Block Party with a Purpose at the Creating Commons Festival 2017. During the festival, we will be offering a one hour Conduit Bending workshop that you'll have hands-on practice learning to:

  • Cut and ream conduit

  • Measure and bend a 90 degree angle

  • Measure and bend offsets and kicks

  • Measure and bend conduit for saddle bend

The ability to bend conduit is highly sought after for technical solar positions, electrical positions and is a fun skill to use out in the field!
