Please Read: Before taking this course, it is important to have prior knowledge about Solar Photovoltaic (PV) design and be familiar with the terms and components commonly found in a typical system. This course aims to provide an introduction to installing a solar PV system for small structures. However, please note that it does not cover the design and basic explanations of a solar power system, which are included in the first two courses: ‘070-Solar Power Design for Small Structures – An Introduction’ and ‘089-Solar Power Systems – Inspecting and Evaluating.’
Please note that this course doesn’t cover the installation of every product available today. However, it does provide a comprehensive guide for installing a complete off-grid solar system. This installation can serve as a useful reference for the various products currently on the market.
