Ontario Solar Academy Launches Scholarship Program for Recent Graduates

Ontario Solar Academy has initiated a special scholarship for University and College students interested in expanding their knowledge of solar energy.

This special offer is available only to students with a valid student card and for our upcoming May & June classes in Vaughan, Ontario.

If selected for this limited scholarship program, we are offering a full $2,000 discount off our regular tuition costs meaning the price of our intensive 5-Day training is only $995!

For more information, please check out our website. www.solaracademy.com


Ontario Solar Academy is Canada's premier ISPQ accredited solar training school. We offer intensive training programs on the installation and design of photovoltaic systems. The concepts introduced through the 5-day program are applicable to sales, designer and installer jobs within the solar industry. Students have the opportunity to write the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) PV Entry Level Exam on the final day of the program. Passing the NABCEP PV Entry Level Exam is a way to demonstrate a strong fundamental knowledge of solar technology and the electrical and mechanical integration of PV systems.

Students will be exposed to:
Introduction to Electricity and Solar Technology
Proper site assessment and shading analysis techniques using sun path calculators and trigonometry.
In-depth examination and evaluation of all electrical components within a PV system.
Exposure to numerous roof mount racking systems and ballasted flat roof racking
Overview of Ontario's FIT / MicroFIT program
Stand-Alone Sizing Methodologies

For any young enthusiastic person wanting to enter the booming solar industry in Ontario, this may be the first step to launching your career. Our sister organization, Ontario Solar Network hosts monthly events and is a great way to meet and network with some of the top solar professionals. Many graduates of our program have secured full time jobs by attending these events.

If you are interested in our scholarship program, or have any questions, please contact Ryan Morgan at 416-900-7191 or email him at ryan@solaracademy.ca

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.
