Thursday Sept. 6th, 2012 @ 4PM Pacific, 6PM Central, 7PM Eastern

This webinar will be an incredible opportunity for anyone interested in learning the ins and outs of off-grid solar PV system design, especially those who are planning to sit for the NABCEP PV Installer Exam on September 22, 2012.

SolPowerPeople is excited to welcome Ryan Light to present a live webinar on Thursday September 6th, 2012 on Off-Grid Solar PV design. By going through an example scenario, Ryan will demonstrate how to properly design an off-grid solar system.

Some topics that will be covered are:

  • Load Analysis
  • Battery Bank Sizing
  • Charge Controller Selection
  • Inverter Selection/Sizing

Ryan Light is the co-owner at IRIS LLC with many years of experience in Renewable Energy design and installation. Mr. Light’s background is in Industrial Technology and Economic Development with work experience at John Deere, General Electric, Peace Corps, MidAmerican Energy, Department of Defense and Eastern Iowa College. Ryan started down the Renewable Energy road at Iowa State University quickly moving from the theoretical to the practical while serving at a Peace Corps Volunteer in Senegal West Africa. While working overseas Ryan has worked primarily on Off Grid Battery systems ranging from portable emergency units, communications arrays, hospital/clinics, schools, private residences and military applications.

Upon returning home to Iowa, Ryan has worked on Energy Efficiency and undertook theĀ  challenges of developing a two year associate program focused on training Small Wind and Solar Installers. With the program firmly established Ryan moved back into private industry by starting IRIS LLC. Projects IRIS is currently working on include military contracts based on portable power systems, consultant work in business development for a local company, missionary/NGO systems used in Asia/Pacific regions, and regulation/legislation with ISETA (Iowa Small Wind and Solar Trade Association).

This webinar will be conducted live September 6th, 2012 at 4PM Pacific, 6PM Central, 7PM Eastern.

See you in the MOOC!
