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 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!
