Hello solar friends!!

Thank you so much for your interest in the COMPLETE SOLAR ENERGY COURSE with 119 lectures and extra downloadable resources to help you design, size, and price your solar system!

In this course, you are going to learn from the basics to the more complex subjects on solar energy.

You are going to learn in-depth and intensive content on solar energy.

This is not just a regular course, it’s complete, intensive, and practical, focused on both technical and commercial sides of solar energy.

Solar Energy is growing exponentially and is growing non-stop, it has already created thousands of jobs in the world. It is getting more complex and more knowledge is needed to differentiate yourself in the industry to land a job or to start your own company.

In this course, you will get A LOT of content and knowledge about solar energy and the industry. Including how to design and size a PV System.

I’m in mechanical engineering and I’ve been working in solar energy for several years, both in the technical and in the commercial and business development side of the industry.

 

I have a great overview of both sides and I focused on both in this course. That’s why also with the technical information, I’ll be talking about commercial tips during the lectures to help you understand how to see the business and where to stand when selling or selling a PV system.

In this course, we also have a financial section in which we learn how to estimate the PAYBACK period of the PV system using the NET PRESENT VALUE method, a method used on investment analysis not only on solar but in many other industries to analyze an investment.

 

The approach of this course is to go from the components to the system, this means, we’ll start learning each component of the system separately, and then after we understand how each component works, we’ll see the system working as a whole, how each component work on the system and how the system works altogether.

 

So there we go, an in-depth, complete course on on-grid solar photovoltaic systems, prepared in a very easy to learn methodology, from the components to the system, step by step, focused on both technical and commercial skills.

You will get access to download the excels that we developed to help you calculate the payback period, the solar energy generation of your PV system for different tilts and we show you how to import the irradiance for any location, the energy consumption of your location, the price per kWp of the system that you are quoting and more.

 

Enroll in our course now! Join the green revolution and become part of the industry!

The goal is to add more value for you and to spread the green revolution, we are firm believers that the world needs clean energy, and at the same time this has to be sustainable

We need more people to join to cover what the world needs, that’s why we want you to join and tell your friends about us and to join as well if they are interested in solar energy!
