USA Solar, based in Richardson, will hold free solar education seminars at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon, July 28, at Central Market, in Plano, to provide information about the fundamentals of solar energy, solar system design, savings and payback formulas. Topics include what to look for in equipment and components to build a high-quality system. A Q&A session will allow attendees to ask questions about new or existing systems, installation, federal rebates, install costs, HOA requirements, do-it-yourself kits and turnkey systems.
Prices of components such as solar panels and inverters have dropped almost 50 percent in the last two years, making systems more affordable and generating a quicker payback. USA Solar’s electric systems are scalable, which means there is an option of starting with a smaller, eight-panel system that generates a large portion of needed energy, versus purchasing a one-size-fits-all system. Because the components work together, panels can be added over time.
Location: 320 Coit Rd., Central Market Community Room, Plano. For more information, call 972-231-4800 or visit USASolarInc.com.
