Ontario Solar Academy Launches Scholarship Program for Recent Graduates

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

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
