Investing in the future of renewable energy: Brain power

Canadian Solar recently made a significant contribution to The College of Renewable Energy (CORE). It donated a number of solar modules for the training of students planning a career in the renewable energy sector. "As part of Canadian Solar’s responsibility to solar education institutions across Ontario, we gave 10 kW of our highly successful and versatile CS6P-P panels to CORE", said Colin Parkin of Canadian Solar.

 

“The great thing about the CS6P-P panels is that they can be employed for just about any function where the application of solar energy is appropriate and, fittingly, they were manufactured right here in Ontario,” Parkin said.

 

The donation of the equipment makes it possible for professors to give students “hands on” experience on the installation and removal of solar modules from roof-top and ground mount systems. 

“Canadian Solar has been involved CORE for many years and we are impressed with the quality of the programs on offer, as well as the high standard of training given be the professional instructors at the college. The donation of the panels is part of our ongoing commitment to support and encourage local colleges to keep students and installers up-to-date on how to safely and properly connect solar systems to the Ontario grid,” said Parkin.
