Description

This half-day workshop will provide 4 hours of the required continuing education (CE) for NC General Contractors, as well as CE for engineers.

  • Building Zero Energy Ready: Deep Dive into Mechanical Systems (2-hr, 8:30am-10:20am) taught by Rob Howard
  • Zero energy ready homes are more energy efficient and have a tighter building envelope than a standard home which changes the landscape for mechanical systems. This course will take a deep dive into high performance mechanical systems including mechanical design for low load homes, IAQ and ventilation, and new equipment choices on the market that optimize comfort, efficiency and cost. A detailed case study will be reviewed.
    Continuing Education Credits: 2 hr. NCGC, 2 PDH
  • Building Zero Energy Ready: Residential Solar (2-hr, 10:30am-12:20pm) taught by Landon Pennington
    The demand for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems is growing. Builders who integrate the ability to add solar PV into new construction can attract customers and stay competitive. This course will give builders a basic understanding of construction and site design for optimum solar performance including the PV install process, battery storage options, understanding energy loads, the impacts to home value, and where the market is going.
    Continuing Education Credits: 2 hr. NCGC, 2 PDH
