SPS Energy Solutions Assists with Solar Seminar in Salt Lake City, Utah

SPS Energy Solutions, a North American solar energy leader in system design and integration, worked with Solar Energy International and The Green Building Center to run a week-long seminar on photovoltaic installation in Salt Lake City.

Solar Energy International (SEI) is a member-supported organization that offers hands on workshops in solar, wind, water power, and natural building technologies. The Green Building Center, a green building supplier and consulting firm, organized a seminar after they sold a 2 kW SPS Energy Green Grid Tie system to Black Diamond, an international climbing gear manufacturer. The installation of this system presented a great opportunity for a SEI to run a solar training course.


The 6-day training course included 4 days of classroom work and 2 days of installation of the SPS Green Grid Tie system. The system includes Evergreen solar panels and a Fronius 2 kW inverter. SPS Energy provided all of the solar equipment and manuals for the installation. Orrin Farnsworth, a representative from SPS Energy Solutions in Utah, also assisted with the instruction of the course.

“SPS Energy Solutions is committed to assisting SEI with education to new customers,” said David Egles, President of SPS Energy Solutions. “With the growth commercial and residential solar installations, education is paramount to the success of this industry.”

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

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.
