SOLAR PANEL CONSTRUCTION
(Course ID: MFIT SOL2)
Ivy Tech's solar panel construction class will explain and examine polycrystalline solar cells, detail the components of a solar cell, and measure and calculate solar panel output. In addition, participants will design and build their own solar energy system. The cost of the solar energy system and all materials are included in the price of the class. Participants also will learn to use a watt meter to gauge the amount of energy appliances and other electrical devices use. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to keep the watt meter. The system that will be built in class is large enough to charge batteries; however, the knowledge and experience gained in this class has no limits.
