Description

When you're designing a zero net energy home or a battery-based solar PV system, electrical loads are the biggest headache. They're very hard to predict!

This presentation covers the subject of plug load energy-efficiency -- the choices occupants make with regard to lighting, appliances, and consumer electronics in the home. You will glean priceless information about how to save hundreds of dollars towards lowering your (or your clients’) utility bills.

The presenter is Chris Calwell, one of the best in the business.
