Holmesglen's renewable and solar energy training gets $2.1m boost
A $2.1 million upgrade of our renewable energy training facilities will boost Holmesglen’s capacity to train workers for Victoria’s clean energy future.
The upgrade, fully funded by the Victorian Government, includes the installation of new solar panels and electric vehicle charging stations at the Moorabbin campus and an upgrade of an existing solar power system at our Drummond Street campus.
More than 630 students have already enrolled this year in solar-based training courses with Holmesglen, Victoria’s leading provider of accredited solar energy short courses for licensed electricians.
Following a tendering process conducted by engineering consultancy FG Advisory, RACV Solar was chosen to install solar panels and a battery storage system which will contribute to students' training in correct installation and set up of commercial-sized renewable energy students.
RACV Solar is an industry adviser to Holmesglen’s Renewable Energy programs, offered as part of the electrical apprenticeship training.
Holmesglen’s three programs: 22515VIC Working Safely in the Solar Industry
, ‘Design and Install Grid Connect PV System’
and Grid Connected PV with Battery Storage
are taught at the Moorabbin campus’ Renewable Energy Centre for Excellence.
