Qualified Engineers Can Convince Homeowners Of Solar Benefits

Trainees who complete solar photovoltaic electrical courses will be best placed to take advantage of opportunities in the renewable energy industry.Research by Puragen revealed that 15 per cent of homeowners are wary of having solar panels installed on their property because they are concerned about employing cowboy fitters who do not have the appropriate knowledge and expertise.Electrical engineers that can demonstrate their competence with solar photovoltaic qualifications accredited by national organisations such as the NICEIC, BPEC and City & Guilds will be able to allay any fears over their ability to install panels.Fully qualified engineers will have the knowledge to help educate consumers about the benefits of solar panels and dispel myths like you need bright sunshine to generate enough energy to power a house.There is clear demand for renewable technology among British homeowners as the study also found that 65 per cent of people believe that it is important to work towards reducing their carbon footprint.Jeremy Malindine from Puragen, comments: "As energy bills continue to rise, renewables provide an attractive alternative for hard-pressed homeowners looking to generate savings on their energy bills over the longer term."Able Skills provide accredited solar pv courses through City & Guilds, BPEC, and NICEIC which are a requirement in order to become Microgeneration Certification Scheme registered.
