SECRES Workshop Presentations

SECRES has held workshops to educate residential and commercial building owners on renewable energy. A core principle is to focus first on energy and water efficiency.  Efficiency improvements have a reasonably fast payback and decrease the required size and cost of the renewable energy system.  We provide the presentations from these workshops and welcome your questions.  Direct inquiries to
