SUNY Ulster/E2G Solar at Kingston, NY - May 18-19


Fellow professionals:

Are you looking for a cost effective and engaging course that will provide NYS PDH credits, NABCEP Continuing Education Credits AND build up your solar thermal credentials?  How about professional grade solar hot water courses? SUNY in Kingston offers a full range of SHW courses by E2G Solar - the next one is the SHW capstone = Advanced Solar Hot Water Installation & Design  May 18-19, 2012.  Check out the SUNY website for sign up details!

Maybe you are like us - looking for that special course that will fulfill your PDH credit requirements and provide an engaging and well crafted presentation that is challenging and useful.  And timely too - remember, NYS offers both generous rebates and tax credits for solar hot water systems, not to mention the 30% federal tax credit!

NEW! Advanced Solar Hot Water Installation and Design Fri & Sat, May 18 & 19   14 PDHs
This is a serious course that builds on topics presented in the E2G Solar 18 hour introductory SHW course, covering the math and physics behind sunlight, collector and system performance and reliability, solar loop designs, heat exchange analysis, hydronic heating and cooling system equipment and design, heating and cooling load analysis, site safety, permitting and building and health code considerations. Other topics include controllers and relays for enhanced system operation, web-based monitoring and troubleshooting, commercial and large residential heating load integration options, geothermal system combinations, large pool system equipment and designs, heat storage strategies, solar supported space cooling, wind and snow loading calculations and difficult roof attachment solutions. 

Serious lab exercises will be a centerpiece of this course, facilitated by a mobile Advanced Solar Lab Station developed by the E2G Solar team.  The instructors will effectively integrate lab experiments into the course at three different modules - heat exchange, pipe flow phenomena and solar/hydronic controls.  The heat exchange module features three different heat exchange mechanisms - submerged coils, a flat plate and closely spaced tees.  The pipe flow module features several different pipe fitting sequences and flow arrangements.  The solar controls module features a wide range of devices solar installers will encounter or select and then wire and program for a sophisticated combi-system project.   

Prerequisites - SHW experience, engineering or architecture background or proof of an 18 hour SHW course such as the one offered by E2G Solar.  

Call to register 845-339-2025.
