Ambassador Energy's trainers, Catherine Kelso and Steve Fulgham, are both double NABCEP certified with NABCEP's PV Installer and PV Technical Sales certifications. AE's California C10 electrician, Kurt Sorensen, is also on hand for the lessons on electrical diagrams, permit packages and site logistics.

"The contractors who come here to train through our proprietary Ambassador Energy Agency Program get the very best of the best," said Kelly Smith, President of Ambassador Energy. "Not only do they learn the technical side from the best trainers in the business, but they get segments from some of our other staff, who specialize in sales, branding, marketing, quoting, presenting, rebates, incentives and client interfacing. It is very well-rounded solar PV training designed for the real world, giving the contractors the ability to immediately begin selling and installing solar. And, because the training really never ends in this dynamic industry, they leave Ambassador Energy training with us in the wings, ready to support them at any juncture. We even go on client visits with them if they need. We are all about their success."

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
