Alpine Design presents info on solar installations

Alpine Solar Design will be providing informational seminars at the Alpine Earth Center in Silverthorne this Saturday and Monday on financial incentives available for residential and commercial solar installations. The seminar/webinars will be scheduled at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. Saturday and 5 p.m. Monday. Xcel Solar*Rewards rebates are now available and the process for receiving them will be one of the topics. The seminars will also be presented as a webinar for those who wish to attend from their own home, office, or iPhone.

Webinars usually follow a format of presenting a Powerpoint outline with the presenter adding more information. Participants can ask questions and make comments. The Fuze program we are using allows the presenter to give control of the webinar to other participants at any time.

Many people have difficulty finding time to go to public seminars. This tool gives them the ability to join a webinar from their computer and multitask. You can split the screen and work on other projects while attending. During our annual solar industry convention this spring I attended a live seminar while also attending a webinar from California on my computer. Of course I was using ear buds so I did not disturb the presenter and participants.

In an era of college students surfing and texting during lecture sessions, the internet form of the lecture works just as well. I had a participant this week call me to let me know he would like to come, but was sick with the flu. When he found out he could join online from his living room, he decided it would be easy.

There are several companies providing webinar services. Gotomeeting, Fuzemeeting, MyMeeting123 are a few. Prices vary and some offer a free 30 day trial. It is a good idea to practice with someone on another computer to find out how the software works before you go live.
