This year SolarFest is excited to be partnering with one of the oldest and largest renewable energy training organizations in the country, Solar Energy International (SEI). Flint Richter, of SEI, will be our lead instructor and trainer.
The 5 day course will include approximately 4 days of classroom time with 1 of on-site hands-on installation of one of the systems integral to the operation of our annual Sustainable Living Festival. The course will build upon the core concepts from PV101, with a specific emphasis on battery-based system design. Students will work through step-by-step design process for battery-based solar electric applications, including stand-alone (off-grid), grid-tied with battery back-up, and hybrid systems. Topics such as load analysis, component selection, battery safety, voltage drop, and commissioning procedures will be presented. In addition to sizing exercises and calculations, students will explore additional design considerations unique to battery-based systems.
This course is ideal for people looking to design and install battery-based solar electric systems, and for solar professionals who have been working in the grid-direct market and need to learn about battery-based systems in preparation for the NABCEP Solar PV Installer Certification Exam.
Prerequisite: PV101 – As part of our partnership with SEI any student registered for this PV203 course at SolarFest will get $100 off the price of the SEI PV-101 Online Course.
