Worldwide demand for electricity is increasing constantly, fossil resources are being depleted at an ever-increasing pace and their extraction often results in environmental damage and climate change. The sun supplies us with sustainable energy that can be transformed into electricity via PV modules without diminishing the energy reserves of the sun. The use of solar energy enables us to help save fossil resources and protect our environment.
6 PV training units, installed by SUNfarming on the site of North-West University, can be used continuously for practical training.
The training (Mastertraining) at the training centre is firmly integrated into the curriculum of NW University Potchefstroom until the end of the project in 2014, specialists are provided with extensive training and enabled to plan, install, operate and maintain PV units themselves in the future.
Over 360 participants were successfully trained in the basics of photovoltaics at the Solar Training Center in 2013/14.
