This online solar training course establishes fundamental concepts required for safe, code-compliant design and installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems, with a focus on residential-sized grid-direct solar electric systems. The goal of the course is to create a fundamental understanding of the core concepts necessary to work with all PV systems, including: system components, site analysis, PV module criteria, mounting solutions, safety, and commissioning.
The course will also cover the basics of sizing residential grid-direct systems, wire sizing, overcurrent protection, and grounding – all of which will be expanded upon in PV 202.
Course Materials: Solar Electric Handbook: Photovoltaic Fundamentals and Applications (Print and eBook Format). Materials and shipping cost are included in the price of tuition for this course. (*International students please see disclaimer below)
