Learn to go solar

The nonprofit Solar Oregon offers a Basics of Going Solar Workshop at Portland Community College's Rock Creek Campus on Saturday, July 13.

The free workshop takes place at 1 p.m. in Building 7, Room 103. Participants will learn about various solar technologies, how to assess their site for its solar energy potential, financial issues, incentives and tax credits, and leasing and power-purchase options.

After the workshop, participants can tour PCC Rock Creek's 35,000-square-foot solar array, one of the largest in the area.
