Ivy Tech to offer solar panel construction course

KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College will be offering a Solar Panel Construction course in Kokomo this spring through its Department of Workforce and Economic Development.

The class will explain and examine polycrystalline solar cells, detail the components of a solar cell, measure and calculate solar panel output, and demonstrate how to use a watt meter to gauge the amount of energy that appliances and other electrical devices use. In addition, participants will design and build their own solar energy system large enough to charge batteries. Upon completion of the course, participants will keep the watt meter and energy system.

The course will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, April 6–May 11. The cost of the course is $375, which includes the solar energy system and all materials.
