Workshop Description

Solar hot air collection is the easiest and most cost effective do-it-yourself use of solar energy to help heat your home, garage, workshop or greenhouse.

Solar hot air panels can be made from readily available recycled materials and mounted on any south-facing wall or window. The panels we will make in this workshop feature an effective collection box, PV driven fan, anti-thermosyphon air intakes and a simple shut-off mechanism. Not only do these panels provide free heating energy, but they also provide fresh air intake during the winter months.

Each participant will build his or her own collector to take home at the end of the workshop. Come and get a start on making your own solar heat this winter!
