Visitors may also participate in 30-minute sustainability and renewable energy workshops led by Durham Tech instructors.
The Solar Photovoltaic certificate is designed for licensed electricians, those pursuing an electrical degree, and those who are working in facilities services under the supervision of an electrician. The certificate instruction includes both energy use analysis and solar photovoltaic system installation.
