Hello to all my fellow classmates and travelers on the road to solar living! On this page you’ll find links to the various posts that are part of the photovoltaic class series. While my coverage of the topic is nowhere near complete, and I recommend that you seek out a class in your area that will go more in-depth, the information on this page should be enough to get you understanding the basic concepts involved in electricity and its applications in renewable energy systems. So at least you won’t take out your power (or your neighbors’ power!) trying to mess with the circuits in your home.
Above all else, don’t be afraid to ask questions! I will try my best to answer any posed here, or simply call up a professional in the industry or a local teacher… most are happy to help others with an interest in alternative energy. And if you’re from my Los Angeles class, take a second to say hello below!

Here are the lessons, in generally the order in which I learned them… we’ll start with theory and with time move on to more practical application.
