Scarborough, Ontario – Continuing to build on its reputation as a responsible green energy EPC and training facility, Interect Inc. is now moving into the next phase of their educational program. Called the Interect Solar Education Program, ISEP, as it is known for short, is seeking accreditation from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) as a continuing education provider.


Since 2008, Interect Inc. has been running workshops and educational classes for people interested in solar energy and looking to gain some introductory knowledge of solar technology. Interect Inc. started teaching the basic, yet fundamental skills involved with solar energy systems by running Site Assessment Workshops. By 2011, their training program expanded to include Basic Fall Protection Certification, 3 Day Introduction To Solar PV Workshops and developed more of a separate identity, under the name of ISEP. The most natural next step was to seek accreditation.

By becoming accredited as a Continuing Education Provider under IREC, ISEP confirms its commitment to providing accurate, relevant information to the public. Current students already benefiting from ISEP's classes will achieve even more benefit through this accreditation and students looking for a renewable energy education program can feel confident in choosing ISEP for their learning needs.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
