Sustainable Technologies A Guide to Successful Building

Renewable Energy Systems: Using the Sun

Familiarize yourself with the design and building process and learn how to work with architects, designers and builders for a successful building experience. This class reviews the systems, processes, details and strategies you need to help you stay within your project budget and manage your home building project effectively. Topics and issues include: calculating hard and soft building costs; budgets and the benefits of early price-checking to stay on budget; how to find the right architect and builder for your project; project process flow chart; and the schedule of values for a building project. We also review some sample sets of construction drawings. Daniel Clavio works with Positive Energy Solar. Tuesday, 6 to 9 p.m., July 23, 1 day. Course #HB322 01/CRN 10622 Daniel Clavio, Fee $49

Learn about renewable energy systems for generating heat and electricity for your home. These systems will reduce your energy costs, decrease your “carbon footprint” and make you less dependant on public utilities. We review solar electric (photo-voltaic or PV), solar thermal (solar water heating and radiant heating), “small” wind, geothermal (or ground source heat pump, for heating and cooling), and passive solar (natural heating and cooling). We discuss system designs and how to incorporate them into existing buildings (retrofits), as well as planning for new construction. We also provide an overview of the costs, financial incentives and tax credits of these systems. Daniel Clavio works with Positive Energy Solar. Tuesday, 6 to 9 p.m., July 30, 1 day.

Water Harvesting and Recycling

EPA Lead RRP Certified Renovator, Initial

Conserving and managing our precious water resources are crucial to living in New Mexico. Learn how water harvesting and recycling systems can reduce your water usage and your water bills. We review current practices for using and managing storm-water, including rooftop capture, passive systems, cisterns, pumice wicks, and infiltration strategies. We also show how easy and cost-effective it is to use your household “gray water” (from showers and washing machines) to irrigate your landscape, plus strategies for dealing with highly-polluting septic tanks and leach fields, making this “black water” safe and usable for irrigating your landscape. Daniel Clavio works with Positive Energy Solar. Tuesday, 6 to 9 p.m., July 9, 1 day. Course #HB326 01/CRN 10620 Daniel Clavio, Fee $49

To protect against the risk of lead based products, in 2008 the EPA issued the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule. It requires that firms performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices. This course is an EPAapproved course. Individuals who successfully complete this course will be certified by the EPA as Lead-Safe Contractors.
