Upper Valley solar installers from Vermont and New Hampshire are loading up their trucks and joining forces with the Hartford Parks and Recreation Department and Vital Communities to bring you a rare opportunity – for ONE DAY ONLY, the Hartford High School Arena will be transformed into a HANDS-ON SOLAR TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE.
Bring an open and curious mind – everyone will enjoy getting up close and personal with the tools and technology of solar energy.
- How big is a micro inverter?
- What do solar cells look like up close?
- What tools can tell you if you have a good solar site?
- How do the panels attach to the roof?
- What is a “tracker”?
- How do solar homeowners track power generation over time?
There’s so much to see! From conducting a site visit to completing the install, let our region’s local installers, current solar homeowners, and energy committee volunteers show you what it really takes to go solar.
