Rainwater, solar energy workshop
John Kight, an engineer and owner of home rainwater-catchment and solar-energy systems, will offer the latest technological information and practical advice for using water- and energy-saving technology Saturday, Aug. 17, at a Harvesting Rainwater and Solar Energy workshop from 9 a.m. to noon.
Participants will hear a presentation in the Cibolo Nature Center library in Boerne and then carpool to Kight’s home to see his systems in action. Kight’s rainwater-catchment system supplies all the water for his family’s household and landscape needs. His grid-connected solar energy panel is also tied to a battery backup and has sufficient energy to power all of his appliances with the exception of air conditioning. The workshop costs $35, $25 for Cibolo Nature Center members.
Register in advance for this Cibolo Nature Center workshop at www.cibolo.org or learn more by calling 830-249-4616.
