Off-Grid Solar Shed

Off-Grid Solar Shed Course



A One Day Course



This course aims to demystify and plainly explain solar electricity to those who want to know what goes on beyond the panel.  You will be given practical demos and hands on experience.  You will be shown how to build your own small/medium solar set up for an off-grid cabin, shed, workshop or vehicle.  How to calculate your energy needs and how to size a system. Where to find the parts and how not to pay more than you need to. If you don't have a project in mind it is still a good base for your solar curiosity.





Course Programme:
1 Day 9.30 - 4.30pm


What To Expect:



This course will cover:

An introduction to Solar Electricity:
The difference between AC and DC electricity

Sizing of the solar system for your needs:
There is a little maths here but if you are not maths minded don't worry, once shown the theory you will be shown where and how to get the calculations done for you. 

Types of solar panel:
The different panels available, their uses and advantages/disadvantages

Knowledge of the components needed to collect, store and supply the electricity made by the solar panel, charge controllers, batteries and inverters

Find out how to build your own small/medium solar set up for an off-grid cabin, shed, workshop or vehicle.

If you have a little experience already or have no experience at all, be reassured that this course is still for you as no previous technical solar knowledge is required!
