Hello Solar Nova Scotia member or friend!
Solar Nova Scotia is pleased to announce the next courses of Solar
Shelter Design, a practical, how-to course on designing and building
solar shelters, incluing greehouses, solaria, additions and
especially solar homes.
This course is intended for the general public and for those in
design and construction. The main instructor is one of Canada's most
experienced solar designer-builders, Don Roscoe.
Here's the outline:
(1) _Solar Basics_ of active and passive, an affordable approach.
(2) _Climate Control_ for comfort and health, energy and the environment
(3) _Site Designing_ working with nature
(4) _Shelter Designing_ bringing you, your needs, and your site together
(5) _Solar Construction_ ground frost insulation, heat storage slabs,
types and systems and solar mechanicals
(6) _Making It Happen_ costing, controlling costs, contracting, doing it
yourself, case studies, and other approaches.
Fee for the course is $90 for individuals and $150 for couples and
includes a hand out. If you don't have a textbook (The Solar Shelter
Manual) already, you can buy one at the course for $15.
When you register, we'll need to know (a) if you're single or a
couple and (b) contact information for you in case something changes.
