PAREI Upcoming Events
– SOLAR ENERGY RAISER September 8, 2012 Meet 8:30am Start 9:00am PAREI will be installing an Apricus 20 Evacuated Tube Collector in Rumney, NH at the home of Susan Sepnoski and Brett Durham. The home is on the same grounds as the Rumney Veterinary Hospital on Quincy Road in Rumney (Just East of the Rumney Town Common).
Whether you are new to solar energy or not, we are looking for volunteers interested in learning “hands on” about installing a solar water heating system. Solar Energy Raisers are modeled after a “barn-raising” following the tradition of neighbor helping neighbor. The teams for the day are the Collector Team, Tank Team, Electrical Team, Chase Team, Tube Team, Pipe Insulating Team and the Observers/Extra Hands. Volunteers are encouraged to bring tools such as cordless drills and pipe cutters. New volunteers should bring when feasible a tool belt with work gloves, black sharpie, tape measurer, rag, safety glasses and utility knife. Safety harnesses may be required for Collector Team. Volunteers still needed for this event! Please e-mail Volunteer Coordinator: Sandra Jonessandra@plymouthenergy.org
