The first class is open to all, but is designed for electrical contractors, officials said in a news release. Entitled “Photovoltaic Installation per the 2011 N.E.C.,” the class is eligible for eight credit hours of continuing education credits required for license renewal. For electrical contractors wanting the credits the cost is $45. For anyone taking the class without CEU credits, the cost is $15, officials said. In both cases, tuition includes class, books, refreshments and lunch.
The second class is designed for construction contractors, homeowners, and anyone interested in energy efficiency and saving money. On hand will be presentations and vendors including Rocky Mountain Power, Questar, Utah Clean Energy, EnergyWise Companies, the Intermountain Weatherization Program, and experts from Utah State University-Eastern.
Topics include learning about utility company rebates, state and federal tax credits, the economic benefits of utilizing the Energy Star program, getting involved as client or contractor with the Intermountain Weatherization Training Program, and other programs. Also included is a special presentation on “Technology Tools for the Construction Industry.” Both contractors and homeowners will have an opportunity to find out how much money they can save by adopting energy efficiency products and techniques, according to the news release.
Both classes will be held Friday, Nov. 9, at Utah State University-Moab, 125 West, 200 South. Registration for either class is through the Grand County Building Inspector’s office in the county courthouse, 125 E. Center St. Those interested can register in person at the courthouse or by calling 259-1344.
