Workshop on solar for low-energy users coming to Sunnyvale

Have a low electricity bill but want to do more to improve your sustainability? Looking at renewable energy options but feel like the large up-front investment isn’t worth it in the long run?

For many residents, particularly those with electric bills under $100 per month, investing in rooftop solar panels has not seemed worthwhile. But, a local non-profit organization — SunWork Renewable Energy Projects — is hosting a workshop with the goal of changing that perception.

SunWork, according to its website, “installs solar electricity systems on small-energy-footprint homes with the help of trained volunteers.”

The event is Saturday, July 20, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

At the event, set for the Sunnyvale Heritage Museum, 570 E Remington Dr., attendees will hear the basics of photovoltaic solar panels.
