To help address the needs of an expanding solar workforce, SolarBridge Technologies (SolarBridge), a leading provider of integrated microinverters that enable TrueACTM solar modules, is bringing its nationwide ACPV Revolution Roadshow and Training to Honolulu on Tuesday, Jan. 29.
Hawaii is primed for continued double-digit solar growth, due to its high energy costs and stated commitment to generate 40 percent of its energy needs from renewables by 2030. Through the ACPV Revolution Roadshow, SolarBridge is providing free technology training, installation demonstrations and hands-on experience for people looking to enter the industry and for solar installers seeking to improve their skills.
All attendees will receive four continuing education credits from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), the leading solar workforce certification agency. The NABCEP training is presented in partnership with Ben Q, a global provider of TrueAC modules for the North American market, and Ontility, a leader in solar training and education.
The SolarBridge ACPV Revolution Roadshow will hold its half-day training on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at R&R Solar and Services, 922 Austin Lane, Building D, Honolulu. For a complete list of tour stops and to register for the training, visit https://solarbridgetech.
The SolarBridge ACPV Revolution Roadshow has been traveling the U.S. since November, with stops in some of the fastest growing U.S. solar markets. At this event, experienced and aspiring installers will have the opportunity to see the latest TrueAC modules, interact with new software monitoring tools, and compete for prizes in an installation showdown.
SolarBridge also recently announced the “Need for Speed” Installation Contest, open to installers throughout the continental U.S. and Hawaii. The installer with the most TrueAC systems commissioned each month will win an iPadTM mini, and the top five installers by September 30, 2013, will win a free trip to Austin, TX, to attend the Formula 1TM Grand Prix TM at the state-of-the-art Circuit of the Americas TM facility.
