  • LUTW Solar PV Course

    • Monday, July 17, 2017 at 08:00 AM – July 22, 2017
    • *TBD* in Calgary, AB, Canada

    Light Up The World (LUTW) has established a partnership with industry-recognized, renewable-energy school Solar Energy International (SEI) to expand solar training opportunities in Canada and Peru.

    To meet the demands of this fast-growing field in Alberta, they are offering two intensive, grid-tied solar training courses in Calgary this summer.

    These courses are designed to be taken in tandem and an additional $200 discount is available to students who sign up for both courses.This training program qualifies for the Canada Alberta Job Grant covering up to two thirds of course costs. Please click through the link for details to see if you can benefit.


    PV101: Solar Training - Solar Electric Design and Installation
    (Grid-Direct)
    July 17-21, 2017 (40 hours)
    Early bird pricing (first 15 to register): $1,595, Regular pricing: $1,795

    Course Overview

    Starting with the fundamentals, students gain a solid understanding of various components, system architectures, and applications for PV systems. This course focuses on grid-­direct PV systems, the largest and fastest growing segment of the PV industry, but covers material critical to understanding all types of PV systems.


    PV202: Solar Training - Advanced PV System Design and the NEC
    (Grid-Direct)
    July 24-28, 2017 (40 hours)
    Early bird pricing (first 15 to register): $1,595, Regular pricing: $1,795

    Course Overview

    The focus in PV202 is on residential and commercial­-scale systems, but the code requirements, design parameters, and best practices are applicable to all types and sizes of PV installations. Detailed lessons address requirements for disconnects, over-current protection, and wire sizing; interconnection requirements and calculations; grounding, ground-­faults, and surge protection; calculations for system sizing, inverter selection, and electrical configuration; ground and roof mount details; and commissioning and performance analysis procedures.

    Please contact LUTW for more information and to register. Please note that there is a cap of 25 students per course and it is expected to fill up quickly.

  • Geothermal Beers Night

    Geothermal Beer Night is an informal event to meet folks in the geothermal energy industry and those who want to see this industry take off.  Join other like minded individuals for a drink or two and share your enthusiasm for one of the cleanest, cost effective power supply options on earth!

    Each month features a special guest speaker from the world of geothermal and a specific topic to discuss. To find the full list of upcoming events and to attend an event please RSVP here.


     

    Geothermal (or earth heat) energy is a clean, renewable source of both power and heat. It is proven technology that provides baseload (24 hours a day, 365 days a year) power, has low to no emissions and one of the smallest environmental footprints of any power supply. Geothermal can be a cost-effective and practical energy solution for an entire generation of Canadians.  

    So come and support this amazing industry!

     

    * The event will be held upstairs in the private room at the Mad Rose Pub.
