Building a solar training facility can take time and financial resources. Education institutions can rent this solar mobile training unit. Cost: $2,000 base + cost of transporting the trailer.

The mock roof is mounted onto a 23′ double axel trailer that can be pulled by a 2.5 ton diesel truck. It is about 20′ in length, 8′ wide and 2.10′ in height. Participants can work on the mock roof.

The Mobile PV Training unit is outfitted with a fully integrated grid tied PV system and a battery based PV system complete with AC and DC disconnects, charge controller, meters, and inverters.
Electrical components are mounted on the back of the roof during training. All components are stored under the roof.

The full height of the system is less than 5’ to comply with fall hazards.
