Solar Installation Professional
Short Description: Our Solar Installation Professional program covers training in Photovoltaic (PV) Systems. In this program, we will cover the principles of PV electricity and how to effectively incorporate it into stand-alone or utility-connected electrical systems. This program provides detailed illustrations that clarify the concepts behind PV system operations. This program is a guide to this clean and cost-effective technology. Beginning with a review of the history of solar water and space heating systems from prehistory to the present, this program presents an introduction to modern solar energy systems, energy conservation, and energy economics. We will discuss multiple types of solar collectors, solar water, and space heating systems including solar pool heating systems, their advantages and disadvantages. This program will also cover system components, their installation, operation, and maintenance as well as how to choose the appropriate system and system size. In this program, we will explore the financial aspects of solar and clearly show that such implementation generates significant savings over time.
