The seminar will cover: 1) Solar PV technology, 2) Electricity basics, 3) Off-grid solar PV system components and 4) Off-grid solar PV system design and sizing basics. At the end of the seminar participants will: 1. Be able to provide a basic explanation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems 2. Be aware of major components required for off-grid solar PV systems and their purpose 3. Have a basic understanding of what’s involved in sizing off-grid solar PV systems Please note, the seminar does not focus on grid-tie systems. Why should I attend?
