_**DEC 10-11: PV Panel Making Workshop */-/*/ Albuquerque, NM/*
9am-5pm (both days) at AAA Solar, 2021 Zearing, NW Albuquerque, NM 87104 
                        
$150 (includes lunch)

Learn about PV technology and how to make your own PV panel with Dr. 
Richard Komp!

As part of this two day workshop, participants will build small solar 
battery chargers to take home with them. The workshop will also include 
time for explanations of how PV cells work and new developments in PV, 
with an informal session to ask about other PV or solar-related interests.

Dr. Komp has over 50 years experience with solar and PV. He invented 
several solar devices, authored books including “Practical 
Photovoltaics” and published numerous articles on solar technology. Dr. 
Komp is involved with several solar organizations and currently travels 
the world giving workshops on solar /PV technologies and applications.

This workshop is ideal for anyone wanting to learn a low tech way to 
make photovoltaic modules, and also suggested for health care 
professionals or others working overseas or in low income communities 
seeking low cost renewable energy technologies.

All proceeds will assist in bringing Dr. Komp to ABQ and benefit the 
Africa Health Net project. The workshop is limited to 15 participants.
