Location: Room 110 Moon Library, SUNY-ESF Campus

Event Description: Our 4-day Basic Photovoltaic Installer Course is a board-recognized training program through North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). In this course students will learn the basics of how to site, design and install photovoltaic (PV) systems. The course includes sizing systems for both grid-connected and off-grid PV systems. Also, the solar resource and the problems associated with shading, orientation and tilt will be reviewed. Basic sizing and system design in relation to electrical load will be discussed. Safety practices for installers and the study of the electrical code for PV systems will be covered in some detail. Students will learn about various mounting systems for PV arrays and how they affect roofs. As part of the class, students will build a working PV system.
