Off-grid solar - design and installation

Like last summer, we are offering a two-day solar energy training. We will learn how to design and install your own off-grid system.


The course is theorical (30%) and practical (70%).

The theory

  • Safety,
  • Direct vs alternating current,
  • Parallel and series curcuits,
  • Voltage, current, wattage, etc,
  • How to size your system.

The practical

Over the two days we will work together to install a 12V/250W system. Participants will use the tools and techniques necessary to install, measure and maintain the system including: solar panels, cables, fuses, breakers, a charge controller, batteries and an invertor.

Les participants auront l’occasion d’utiliser tous les composants et les outils nécessaires pour faire une installation dont : panneaux solaires, câblages, fusibles, disjoncteurs, contrôleurs de charge, batteries et onduleurs.
