The ISEA is offering a 32-hour Photovoltaic Design & Installation (PV301) workshop at LEED Council in Chicago on 4 consecutive Saturdays beginning June 4th.


PV301 offers participants an advanced level of hands-on and lecture to prepare them for field installations and other advanced workshops. PV301 is for individuals interested in getting hands-on experience sizing, designing, and installing a residential sized photovoltaic system.

Participants will revisit how to correctly design, size and select PV system components and identify and interpret National Electric Code (NEC) articles that pertain to the installations. While working on a training roof, participants will learn safety procedures, system design and layout, component selection and specification, electrical and mechanical integration techniques, and troubleshooting that take place on real job sites.

Participants are required to have attended a PV101 and PV201 class, or comparable classes.

    US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

    US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

    Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
