Training for Solar Thermal Installers
Supply, in conjunction with Solar Connecticut, will be looking for
plumbers and HVAC contractors interested in earning the ST-1 designation
from the State of COnnecticut. This designation will then allow
the Solar Thermal projects done by these contractors to be eligible for
rebates and incenives provided by the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund.
Further information will be posted on our website, as well as via email
as it becomes available. Tentatively, we are looking to the winter
(2010 / 2011) to have this 3 day course.
If you've ever wondered where to start in bringing your
home's energy usage down, or what are the newest and best products
and practices for reducing energy consumption, you won't want to
miss one of the presentations being made by Marc Rosenbaum, the guru
of "Deep Energy Retrofits". Austi Brown, working in
conjunction with the Kent Energy and Environmental Task Force has
arranged for Mr. Rosenbaum to be available for 2 sessions!
The first (evening) session is geared for the homeowner, and the
second is an all day presentation geared to the builder,
tradesperson or developer involved with home construction, but
interested homeowners are invited as well.
Read on for further information, and we look forward to seeing you all

on energy consumption....
Homeowners, building contractors and other tradespeople
(electricians, plumbers, insulation installers, HVAC contractors)
can all benefit from Marc's practical and tested insights into
making our structures more efficient. Building energy
consumption is a science, as is being recognized by the IECC
(International Energy Conservation Code). New mandates will
soon be implemented by building inspectors for both new construction
and major renovations. The more we all know as consumers and
professionals about rehabilitating our existing housing stock, the
more independent we can become.
Understanding the value equation - dollars invested today
versus higher energy costs over time - justify remediation.
