A Guide to Health and Safety Impacts of Solar Photovoltaics
This online engineering PDH course presents the health and safety impacts that solar photovoltaics have on the surrounding environment and communities.
Solar photovoltaic systems are technologies that capture sunlight in order to generate electricity. This technology has been around for a long time, but due to the recent rapid increase in its use and development of large solar fields, many who live in nearby communities have become unnecessarily afraid due to speculation about the effects of photovoltaic systems.
This 1 PDH online course is intended for civil, electrical and mechanical engineers to better understand the safety concerns during installation and maintenance of photovoltaic technologies.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the different system components
- Learning about panel end-of-life management
- Gaining an overview on operations and maintenance
- Understanding the effects of electromagnetic fields
- Learning about electric shock and arc flash hazards
- Familiarizing with fire safety concerns
