1-Day Solar Electric (Photovoltaic) Basics Workshop
October 12, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$100 – $125
This workshop is a slimmed down version of our complete 5-day course that leads to ETA certification in PV. As such, if you take this course and then later decide to pursue the full certification course, we will apply the registration fee of this class to the certification class if and when you sign up (so we will deduct the $100 fee from the longer class registration fee).
This course, due to time constraints, is a seminar-based program (no hands on). It is designed for individuals with little or no background in electricity or photovoltaics. But after attending this class you will understand:
- Basic electrical principles and concepts.
- Basic Principles and Concepts of Photovoltaics
- Photovoltaic System Components, and how to select the items that are right in a given situation
- Standard PV system configurations, and when and why to use each
- How to conduct a Site Assessment
- How to Design a Photovoltaic System
- Sizing and Selecting a Battery System
- Steps involved in System Installation
- Rules, Regulations and Paperwork Required
