LEED Strategies and Solar Technology [Tucson]

Tuesday 04 October 2011, 01:00pm - 05:00pm

Architects, engineers and building designers in Tucson are building LEED® certified buildings, but may not fully understand how to integrate solar into these projects to maximize their LEED points. The City of Tucson, Pima County and many other jurisdictions now require LEED certification to the Silver level. The City also has a 5% solar requirement for all city-funded buildings. Learn about the new City/County Net Zero Energy Program which integrates solar and energy efficient building design. This workshop is designed to provide updates on solar technology for building designers and on LEED requirements for solar people. Plenty of time for your questions!

  • Solar Technology overview and update, including SolOpt tool
  • Planning for future solar: Solar Ready Building Guidelines
  • LEED points from Solar PV and Solar Water Heating
  • Pima County Net Zero Building program
  • Jesse Dean, National Renewable Energy Lab
  • Jim Bradburn - National Renewable Energy Lab
  • Rich Franz-Ünder - Green Building Program Manager, Pima County Development Services Dept.

Location: Pima Community College - Downtown Campus | Building CC-180, Amethyst Room | 1255 N Stone Ave | Tucson

Registration for this event will close at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 3.
