Photovoltaic Training: Register Now!

Local engineers and architects, as well as electrical, building and plumbing contractors, are encouraged to attend a special workshop on the topic, "Code-Compliant Design and Installation of Photovoltaic (PV) Systems."

Friday November 28th is the registration deadline for this two-day workshop. It will take place December 3-4 at the Marriott Resort, from 8:30a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The registration fee is $400.

The course is intended for professionals having a strong PV-installation or electrical-contracting background. Participants will be provided with the necessary information to design, build and install code-compliant PV systems. They are, however, reminded to have with them the 2005 National Electrical Code, as well as a pen and highlighter.

This is not an introductory course; attendees are expected to understand PV fundamentals, electrical systems, and to have previously attended basic PV training.

Others for whom this training is relevant include engineers, NABCEP-certified installers, solar contractors, plan examiners, inspectors, and anyone hoping to take the NABCEP PV installer exam.

Certificates will be presented upon completion of the two-day workshop; to receive them, participants must have attended both days. The course also provides 14 continuing education units towards re-certification to those holding current NABCEP documentation.

Registration forms and detailed course outlines are available through the Planning Department, or online at For more information, contact the department on 769-7526.
