Gallup Solar’s courses take place on the first three Wednesdays of the month.
Board meetings are on the fourth Wednesdays.
We have completed
our course on
Off-Grid Solar PV.
Many of the sessions can be found on our website gallupsolar.org under menu GS101.
The course led to the development of a small affordable DC system, which is on site for viewing every Wednesday.

Our next course,
will be 12 one hour sessions
on Solar Heating.
The second hour of our 6-8 pm meetings
will be followup and continuation of our learning about Off-grid Solar PV.
Solar heating, unlike PV
where all parts are manufactured and
just require assembling,
has many aspects that are not standardized:
insulation, plumbing, ducts, fans and sensors.
Heating with the sun
is a challenge!
But it is an exciting field
and a new frontier
full of possibilities for invention.
Please join us!
