Solar Power Seminar: Before and After the Storm

A multi-part seminar on the use of solar energy in Florida will be held on October 24th from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Cocoa Beach Library. The seminar is open to the public and is perfect for current solar energy users and those interested in learning more about solar options. Presenters will cover several solar use topics including how solar came to the rescue during and after hurricane Irma. Attendees will also get a sneak preview of the upcoming annual solar tour planned for October 28th.

Ray Osborne of A1A Research will share stories of how solar power was used during the storm and give a slide presentation of solar usage with both residents and local businesses. Pictures from previous solar tours include a ground-mounted solar array, a solar parking canopy, a utility-owned solar farm, roof-top solar arrays and solar components used to provide power during a storm.

Bill Young, representing the Florida Renewable Energy Association, will discuss solar electric emergency power systems – an option for when the grid goes down. Photovoltaic (solar) power systems with storage are similar to an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), providing a seamless transition from utility power to homes and businesses. Learn about the advantages of photovoltaic systems compared to fossil fuel generators.

Location: Cocoa Beach Public Library, 550 N Brevard Ave, Cocoa Beach. For more information, email SolarUsers@gmail.com or call 904-290-1513.
