According to the US Department of Energy, Photovoltaic (PV) technology is a young, growing high-tech industry that is going to create jobs and strengthen the economy. PV makes use of the abundant energy of the sun and has little or no negative impact on our environment. It can be used in a wide range of products, from small consumer items to large commercial solar electric systems.
Within the next 10 years, PV electricity will be competitive in price with traditional sources of electricity and will become widely utilized. Now is the time to learn how to work with this important new technology and help reduce the world’s carbon footprint. Coursework Includes: Grid Tied Systems, Solar Thermal Applications, Hybrid Systems and Rainwater Systems.
