Course Overview

The course majorly focuses on hands-on training for component installation, commissioning of 1 kWp Off-Grid and 3 kWp On-Grid Solar PV Power Plant. It will also focus on Operations and Maintenance practices pertaining to solar PV systems. The participants will also be given training on marketing & entrepreneurship skill so that they will become the campaigners of solar energy.
Total duration of the training will be 7 days.

Essentials Required of SolarInstall

1. Participants Selection

• Engineers, Electricians, Technicians and other solar aspirants

2. Plant Visit

• There will a PV system plant visit for the participants included in the workshop

3. Off Grid and On Grid PV system hands on practice

• There will be a 4kWp PV system plant for hands on practice of installation and commissioning

4. Certification

• Certificates will be issued by kWatt Solutions Private Limited, Society for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, IIT-Bombay to the Students/faculties who would attend and successfully complete the training program

5. Job Opportunities

• Government has set a target of 100GW solar installation by the year 2022 which will create job opportunities for more than 1.6 million skilled technicians in solar installation

Solar Power Plant Installed Sites and Sites under installation

kWatt Solutions is also engaged in design and installation of solar PV systems. It has installed over more than 900 kW of solar power systems across the country. We use our systems which are already installed or currently being installed for demonstration and on-site practice to our participants. This gives them real life experience of solar PV systems and makes them skillful in installation, repair and maintenance of the solar PV systems.
