Owens Community College in Toledo is offering a “photovoltaic principles and application training program” in the spring of 2008. It’s a 5-day program for people interested in installing and integrating photovoltaic panels with “utility-based or off the grid power systems.” The class covers basic electricity, PV systems, and PV theory.
This is exciting for anyone who wants to get a jump on the new service-based industry that will be in high demand very soon. Owens Community College students installed solar panels for OCC in 2005. It’s great to see colleges get on board with saving energy, and providing a real competitive edge for their students by demonstrating renewable energy.
