About Course

When people think about alternative or renewable energy, the first image that comes to mind is often large blue or black solar panels on rooftops or portable highway signs that have a small panel attached. These solar panels, also known as photovoltaic modules (or PV modules), convert sunlight into electricity, and they have been the backbone of renewable energy for decades. The Photovoltaic Effect (how sunlight is converted into electrical energy) was discovered over a hundred years ago! Yet widespread implementation of this technology has been very gradual. Only in very recent years has photovoltaics gained wide popularity as an alternative way to produce electricity. Welcome to into a powerful career in renewable energy it is the future and because of that, you have a lucrative future if you get in today. Included in the training is a free training material which is more than 100 pages. During this training, we shall take you from novice to pro.

Description

The first PV modules were launched into space In 1958 to power satellites.

Even today, solar power is the primary source of energy at the International Space Station.

On Earth as well, PV has traditionally been used in areas where there is no practical source of electrical power but there is abundant sunshine.

Solar panels are often used for remote applications: like powering cabins, RVs, boats and small electronics when grid service is not available. Recently, “grid-interactive” solar electric systems have started gaining momentum as a cost-effective way to incorporate solar electricity into our everyday lives.

Now we can take advantage of available solar energy while still enjoying the safety net of the utility grid.
