Andy Reynolds is a long term practitioner of low impact living and runs the family home in the Fens from wind, solar and wood. This one day course is the perfect opportunity to get involved in building a small solar PV system. It will cover both off grid battery and grid connected systems. Discussion and observation will be woven through the practical sessions, with the opportunity at the end of the installation to ask Andy any questions related to your specific application.
The various subjects covered will include: types of solar PV panel; mounting options; system capacity and panel size; system voltage; electricity and Ohms law; batteries, inverters, DC load control, grid inverters, and more.
If you want to know more about Andy visit his YouTube channel and the basis of the course is his book about this subject Wind and Solar Electricty.
