In this 1-day course, the focus lies on understanding the legislation that is applicable for PV installations, especially SANS 10142-1, and what is necessary to comply. The usually dry topic is made interesting and comprehensible by not just reading from the guidelines but applying it to real-life installations.

NOTE: A participant must have an attendance rate of at least 90% in order for GREEN Solar Academy to issue a certificate of attendance.

Target Audience

  • certified electricians
  • advanced solar installers who want to be able to advise electricians and check compliance

Disclaimer: Only certified electricians are allowed to work on DB boards. We are happy to share knowledge with everyone but legal restrictions apply and our training does not enable non-certified persons to carry out any tasks that exceed their qualification.

Main Topics

  • Introduction to scope of the course and overview of relevant standards for PV installations
  • Analysis of best practice examples incl. earth loops, bonding, trunking, DC and AC protection
  • Exercise on wiring for a grid-connected PV system with storage
  • Practical installation of a compliant PV system
  • Commissioning procedures and testing (string voltage and polarity, insulation resistance, bonding resistance, earth-neutral test, anti-islanding test)


This is an advanced course and a very specialised topic. Participants should have either an electrical background (certified electricians, electrical engineers with practical experience) or be solar installers with site experience.

It is recommendable to do our comprehensive 5-day SuperSolarSchool course, before doing this course for a general overview of PV installations.
