Specialist Training In Solar Pv Design And Installation

Date: 31st AUG – 07th SEPT, 2015

Venue: Solargrid/UENR Training Centre SOMOVISION building near SDA junction), Adenta-ACCRA

The Energy and Environment department of University of Energy and Natural Resources, Sunyani is organizing hands-on PV Stand – alone installation training. This solar training provides an advanced practical knowledge required for safe, code-compliant design and installation of photovoltaic (PV) systems, with a focus on both grid and off-grid solar electric systems. This training also provides effective use of energy modelling softwares such as RETscreen and HOMER for easy technical design and financial engineering of renewable energy technologies. The goal of this training is to create unique and specialized practical concepts needed to work on all PV systems, including: system components, system sizing, site analysis, PV module criteria, mounting solutions, over-current protection, grounding, safety, and commissioning.


This training is developed to train students and professionals with interest in Solar Energy and its applications


  • Perform power & energy calculations
  • Evaluate Utility bills and perform load analysis
  • Estimate energy production from PV systems
  • Design both on/off grid PV systems
  • Perform  monitoring, maintenance  and diagnostic test on PV system
  • Technical expertise in installing PV with little or no supervision
  • Perform technical designs using RETscreen and HOMER
  • Perform effective cost benefit analysis using RETscreen


There exist a readily available job placement with reputable companies and consulting firms after training course. Several firms have subscribed with UENR to employ trainees immediately after the training
