THE SOLAR ACADEMY
Approximately 13 years ago, the Solar Academy was established in response to reports and firsthand accounts highlighting issues with solar Photovoltaic (PV) design, sizing, and installation, as well as a lack of accessible information for the public. In 2012, the inaugural group of 41 trainees successfully completed the T1&T2 training, marking the beginning of a series of subsequent trainings. Since then, the Solar Academy has consistently trained at least two cohorts per year. Its primary objective is to train solar PV professionals and experts and with its pool of about 10 trainers and facilitators, it is a leading institution in solar PV training.
