— A free, do-it-yourself solar workshop is being offered by the nonprofit SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education & Development Support).

Learn why so many people are producing their own electricity. The two-night workshop will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20, and Wednesday, June 21, at the Wayne Conservation District in the Park Street Complex, 648 Park St., in Honesdale (near Wayne Memorial Hospital). This is the fifth year SEEDS has offered the hands-on workshop, one of its most popular, helping to increase the number of solar systems in the region.

The workshop is for anyone interested in learning more about solar energy, especially those wishing to install their own solar photovoltaic (PV) — electric generating — array. No experience is necessary, nor is there any obligation to make a solar purchase. Just come, listen, and ask questions.

SEEDS says manufacturing costs of solar panels have dropped more than 50 percent in the past few years, and installing them yourself makes generating your own power even more affordable. The workshop will provide information about the federal tax incentive still available. Several owners of these systems will talk about their experiences.

“SEEDS is strongly committed to education about renewable energy, how it can save you money and improve the quality of life in our community,” says Jack Barnett, a SEEDs board member. “If you want to attend this workshop just to learn more about solar, the economics, or how it works, without investing in a system, that’s fine. And, if you want to take the step to invest in solar, this is definitely a valuable workshop for you.”

Registration is required. Contact SEEDS at or call 570-245-1256.

SEEDS promotes energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainable living in the region. Visit to join its e-newsletter list.
