SPW - South - Solar Source Institute Education Goes a Long Way Education Goes A Long Way

Solar Power World | Sept. 2013 Largo, Fla. – A few years back, as the solar industry started to bloom, Solar Source (No. 103) was getting a lot of calls.  “We were getting inquiries from electricians, plumbers, residential contractors and others,” says Rick Gilbert, Solar Source’s vice president. “We decided we should just put everyone into one classroom.” The response to the company’s one-day classes was so overwhelming, Solar Source started its own institute in 2007. Since then, it has stayed true to its mission to educate and train architects, engineers, builders-developers, electrical and solar contractors — and ultimately all contractors that touch the solar industry. In the classroom, online and with hands-on labs, the Solar Source Institute’s training course covers everything from solar photovoltaic and solar-installer training to renewable-energy education, sales- and-marketing and grid-tied installation with battery back-up.  Full Article >>>

Our VP, Rick Gilbert was featured as one of the top five most listened-to podcasts for Solar Power World  in February.  Rick is going to be a regular contributor to the Solar Power World podcast series, which is called Solar Speaks. You can listen to his podcast here. Rick discussed the creation of Solar Source Institute, which offers general classes for the public on how solar panels work, and technical training for contractors who want to learn how to install solar panels.  Rick also discussed how lack of meaningful policy is hampering solar development by preventing large-scale investment in solar energy here in the Sunshine State.
