While hands-on training opportunities abound in the field of renewable energy systems, very few include training for dealing with extremely remote, off-grid installations. In addition, as the PV industry has shifted focus to urban grid-tie systems, many experienced PV installers in urban areas now have never worked with a battery-based system. This course gives an excellent, basic foundation for safe and sound design of off-grid systems, with a focus on the most remote and difficult locations.
The 8-hour "classroom" version of this course is suitable for anyone considering building or moving into an off-grid home. It is also highly recommended for professional PV installers in urban and suburban areas who need to gain experience in grid-tied battery-backup and completely off-grid systems.
Students who successfully complete this class are eligible for 8 NABCEP / IREC Continuing Education Credit hours.
Also note that this class is the first module of Wind Turbine Design and Construction, held at the same location following this class.
