Event description

Description

This FREE and highly informative class will give you the information you need to take steps within your home to shrink your carbon footprint. A set of basic principles will be presented that describe how to implement energy efficiency, electrify space and water heating, electrify transportation, and use solar photovoltaics (PV) to power the result. The first hour of the class is a lecture format and the second hour of the class is an optional tour of a home in the city of Napa that implemented all of these steps and now has a zero carbon footprint. Instructor Tom Hoff is the founder and chief research officer of Clean Power Research. A pioneer in the science of valuing distributed solar generation, Tom holds a number of patents in the area of PV fleet power estimation and has published and lectured on the topic extensively for more than 25 years. His numerous research topics include: valuation of photovoltaics and distributed generation, risk management and renewables and, most recently, methods to characterize PV output variability. In performing his research, Tom has been known to test hypotheses using the PV and electrical systems in his own home. He holds a Ph.D. in Engineering-Economic Systems from Stanford University’s School of Engineering. RSVP is highly recommended but not required. We will be asking you for additional information at the start of the class in order to complete your registration.
