Glen Morris will be running another four day residential Solar + Storage training courses at Smart Energy Lab near Healesville, Victoria.  Next course runs 8:30am to 5pm 26 February to 1st March (3:00pm finish on Friday).

Attendees are welcome and encouraged to arrive on the Monday before the course and enjoy a complimentary dinner and extra night’s accommodation with their fellow students.

This course will deliver a detailed understanding of how to size, configure, program and design both on-grid “solar hybrid” systems (solar panels plus battery storage) and off-grid stand-alone power systems. No prior knowledge is required though a basic understanding of solar PV systems is beneficial.

No “live” LV electrical work will be undertaken by unlicensed participants, thus no electrical licensing prerequisite. All practical system training will be done on ELV (<120Vdc and <50Vac) systems and pre-wired LV systems for non-electricians. Students will gain the necessary skills and knowledge to design off-grid or on-grid “hybrid” system to customer requirements.

The course will be held at Smart Energy Lab located within Moora Moora Community Coop – an off-grid community consisting of 30 homes. Moora Moora Coop has been living and demonstrating off-grid living for over 45 years.

Full fee participants can enjoy on-site accommodation (backpacker style bunk rooms) and professionally prepared meals by our wonderful chef (any special dietary requirements will be gladly accommodated).

Other accommodation options are available nearby including: Lyrebird Cottages,Santuary House Resort Motel and many others in and around Healesville including a large number of AirBnB options.

The Smart Energy Lab is about 75 minute drive from Melbourne Airport. No public transport options are available so you will be required to make your own transport arrangements. Most students flying into Melbourne choose to hire a car (we try to coordinate sharing) or book a minibus with  Yarra Valley Transfers.

The training facility has been generously supplied by many of the leading off-grid and on-grid “hybrid” system manufacturers.
