Join our enormously popular instructor Bjarne Hansen for an evening of talk about the various ways to generate power and how best to store it. After a bit about safety, a quick “here’s how electricity works” intro, and some tool-talk, he’ll go on to discuss:

  • solar panels,
  • wind generators,
  • towed generators, and
  • fossil-fuelled generators.

Bjarne will help you understand:

  • lead-acid batteries,
  • lithium batteries,
  • how to charge them in a way that maximizes their life,
  • charge controllers, and
  • battery monitors.

Finally, he’ll help you troubleshoot. Electricity and water? What could possibly go wrong? Bjarne is here to help you do it right.
