Upcoming Solar Courses!

This month’s top recommendation:
Advanced PV Systems: August 16-20
This advanced course has been accredited by the Institute for Sustainable Power Quality (ISPQ) and covers the NABCEP PV Installer Certification Task Analysis. It is especially useful for people who currently work in the PV industry. The course is the more advanced companion to the PV Design and Installation Intensive, challenging participants to tackle many of the decisions presented to PV designers and installers to meet NEC regulations. Knowledge and experience in PV is assumed and a minimum of basic algebra proficiency is expected. For more information, please contact Paul at 707-472-2451 or [email protected]
