Solar PV Hybrid Training

Glen has just finished running another Australian Solar Council training course at Moora Moora Community Cooperative (Healesville, VIC). The focus of this course was on understanding solar PV hybrid and off-grid systems. The course had no prerequisites and attracted a wide range of participants wanting to learn more about renewable energy systems both on and off-grid.

Here’s a few photos.

    1. Hi Greg,

      I ran my last Stand-alone Power Systems course in Brisbane in November last year… since the practical needs to be done on real equipment I choose to have the practical down in Melbourne at my training facility here. This proved to be quite a bit of travel as many of those doing the Brisbane course came from all over Queensland. Hence I’ve decided to run the next SPS course wholly in Melbourne (8 days) over two weeks. Date yet to be confirmed but probably July 2015. Watch the Australian Solar Council website for details at http://solar.org.au/events/
