Photovoltaic systems produce power with semiconductors configured in series and parallel connections. It is very important to have the knowledge to know how to install solar PV systems safely and in a manner that will harvest the maximum amount of energy. An improperly configured system will produce no or low energy.
This course will cover how to install and design systems and will focus upon the intricacies of interconnecting systems to the existing grid and will also cover grid tied systems with battery backup and battery based stand alone photovoltaic systems.

Solar panels have gone down four times in price in the last four years. We are at a point where solar produced energy is less expensive than conventional energy. This fact, along with new solar energy policies have created a situation where there is a potential for great business opportunities in an industry where doing the right thing is also doing something that is financially beneficial. This is an industry where when new policies emerge, there are solar gold rushes.
