For One CSL Credit
This module takes a deeper look into Solar Ready requirements. We discuss changes to Solar Ready and reinforce requirements that have not changed. We also look at Electric Vehicle readiness as it applies to one and two-family housing as well as townhomes and R-Use buildings 3 stories and below. We’ll also cover some exceptions to both Solar Ready and EV Ready, and share some frequently asked questions from our code hotline.
This event is open to MVBA members and non-members. If you are interested in becoming a member and gaining access to ALL our events including continuing education classes and networking opportunities, visit our website.
Speakers from Denmark, Maine and Washington State, will share details from the electrification of their fleet. The Steamship Authority and Eversource will talk about the possibilities for our community. Transportation is one of the largest contributors to carbon emissions, and on the Vineyard, ferries make up a significant portion of that transportation impact. Please come in person to show the Steamship Authority that transitioning to electric ferries is important. If you cannot come, Zoom is an option. To learn more, see the full event flyer here.
