As technology in the industry rapidly improves and advances, installers need to move in lockstep. To that end, AllEarth Renewables is launching a new dealer training program to support its growing network of solar tracker installers across the country. Those interested in participating will travel to AllEarth’s headquarters and manufacturing facility in Williston, Vt. The first dealer training was held in Vermont last month.
“As we expand the availability our product across the country and the dealer network out there installing it, we are committed to working hard to train our solar partners so they can be as successful selling our product as we have been,” said David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables. “These trainings are designed to give installers the technical expertise to complete one-day installs of our pre-engineered dual-axis tracking system and boost their knowledge of our cutting edge product.”
There are two tiers of training for dealers.
The “Installation Training” gives new installers a broad overview of the AllEarth Solar Tracker and how it works, as well as an understanding of the product’s components. It includes a walk-through of the tracker’s production process, a tour of the nearby 2.2 MW Claire Solar project with 366 trackers, and the one-day installation of a tracker behind the company’s manufacturing facility.
The company’s “Elite Training” is designed for the experienced tracker dealer and provides a deep dive into the technical aspects of the product. Participants will gain insight into the company’s production and quality control processes, mechanical and electric components, software, UCC dashboard data and site analytics tools. The training also includes hands-on tracker inspection and project engineering.
Training dates are scheduled through the fall and more information on the training opportunities can be found at the AllEarth’s website.
AllEarth Renewables manufactures the AllEarth Solar Tracker, a dual-axis solar tracker that uses innovative GPS and wireless technology to follow the sun throughout the day, producing up to 45 percent more energy than rooftop solar. The company has manufactured and installed 3,000 solar tracker systems used for residential and commercial installations.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
