3-Day Class (Thur-Fri-Sat)
Cost: $350.00 per person; NMSEA members - $335

For the first time, NMSEA is presenting the class that has been taught 
at Solar Energy International for a decade at least.  This will be a 
great class, particularly for those who are not sure whether they are 
ready to go into business for themselves.  Chuck covers solar career 
choices, licenses and certificates, taxes, accounting, tools, inventory, 
advertising and so on.

The class is currently scheduled for the end of October, but we're 
trying to move it to not overlap with the Photovoltaic class.  Stay 
tuned for the new date.

The PV market is ripe for growth! If you are considering launching a 
business in solar, do not miss this opportunity to meet and talk to 
successful solar business leaders in our state. Students will have a 
chance to learn what works and what doesn't, and will walk away with the 
tools to start their new business. This workshop has an emphasis on PV 
installation businesses, but also will look at roles of distributors, 
solar thermal business, manufacturing, and international opportunities.

The instructor is Chuck Marken of Remod Inc. Chuck is a New Mexico 
licensed plumber, electrician and heating and air conditioning 
contractor. He has been installing and servicing solar thermal systems 
since 1979. He teaches for Solar Energy International and is the solar 
thermal editor for /Home Power/ magazine.

This Month's Topic: "Solar Heated Swimming Pools for the City of 
Albuquerque - An Update"

Jim D. Palmer, PE, CEM, GBE, LEED-AP, President of NRG Engineering will 
provide an update on system types, sizes, dates, BTUs saved and dollars 
saved on gas bills for the City of Albuquerque by using solar heating on 
swimming pools. Jim Palmer has been involved with this project since its 
conceptual stages through to construction. Jim will describe solar 
thermal installations (including some used in Albuquerque public 
schools) and report on their effectiveness.

There is no fee to attend ABQ Chapter meetings, but a $2 (or more) 
donation is greatly appreciated!
