      Description

      Course objective (Applicability): DGS Solar Power Designers Commercial are able to design, supervise construction sites and commission commercial PV systems up to 1 MWp.

      Outline: In the three training days the participants will have a close look at commercial size PV systems. The main focus lies on the technical skills: How to determine the size of a system, how to size the system, what components are common and recommended, existing laws and regulations and how to use software (PV SOL Premium) to size commercial size systems. We will also have a look at typical obstacles that occur during project implementation: Organisation of a project and problem solving. 

      Duration: 3 Days (24 Education units)

      Prerequisites

      Participation in the SuperSolarSchool or proof of sufficient pre-knowledge in the field of solar PV basics and grid-tied PV system design.

       

      A participant must have a 90% attendance rate in order for GREEN Solar Academy to issue a certificate for this training.

      I am a qualified electrician holding a Trade Certificate in Electrical General, currently working as a renewable sales consultant. I already had 2 years’ experience in the physical installation of solar. Now, I've learned how to size the systems myself, and more about the types of systems on offer, protection devices, and the monitoring options available. I would like to advise young people, electricians and solar technicians to take part in this training to learn about solar in depth.

      Prior to attending SuperSolarSchool, I had a little knowledge of solar through reading. I co-ordinate and consult on community projects, so I needed to be 100% sure I was dispensing the correct, safe, effective solar advice. I would recommend this training to technicians, solar installers and electricians so that they can get more knowledge and skills on how to maintain solar.

      I am currently a Project Manager with a background of working as a refrigerator technician and electrician. This course taught me how to do system design, what to consider when doing maintenance, and how to engage potential clients. Next, I will be going for my PV GreenCard. I will be recommending this same training for my team who are busy assisting me with the installations.

      My electrical background allowed me to set up my own company. I came to the training to also learn how to do battery and inverter sizing, which I did. I also learned the importance of site visits and doing a full load profile analysis. I would highly recommend this training!

      I have a background in advertising and marketing, and my current job is Business Development Manager at Pupkewitz. Thanks to this training, I will be able to generate more proposals, as I have a far better understating of how to calculate system size. I will obviously recommend this training to other technicians or solar installers.

      I am a Technical Advisor with a background in farming (agriculture has actually been my hobby since I was young). I had no pre-knowledge of solar before this training, and I have learned a lot about how solar PV works. I’m going to continue to get more knowledge and skills in solar. I would recommend this training to anyone who would be interested.

      I am salesman and HR practitioner with a basic knowledge of electricity. I had no pre-knowledge of solar. Now that my training is done, my goal is to become a certified solar technician and start my own installation company.

      I am a Renewable Energy Consultant with 6 years’ experience in solar system installation. This training taught me how to do design in depth and how to balance the system with calculations and the usage of designing software. I would recommend this training to solar installers and consultants.
