This 8-hour course uses a combination of lecture and classroom activities to teach the basics of
photovoltaic (PV) systems. Participants will learn how PV systems work, diagram the four PV system
types, describe and identify components, understand the best application and limitations of each system
type, define the solar window, make energy efficiency recommendations, estimate system loads, and
understand the basics of PV site assessment.
