Professional Development & Training
We take our work very seriously and undertake continual training & professional development courses - both to stay on top of regulatory requirements and also bring our customers the best options from a fast-moving world of technology. We are members of all the major trade bodies to assure you that you get the most professional job, done in a freindly professional manner.
In March 2011, we attended a week long series of training courses at SMA's world headquarters in Kassel, Germany. Training covered Advanced inverter operation and system design, large scale system design (over 100kWp) Inverter communication and monitoring and inverter maintenance. Both of them found it to be a real eye-opener with many Myths perpetuated in the UK being dispelled.
The SMA Academy in the background of the picture is a run totally off-grid being powered primarily by Photovoltaics with battery storage and a surprisingly small combined heat and power plant. During the week they were there, the whole building ran entirely off PV power. Following on from the training, H2ecO has been granted one of a very limited number of grid guard codes in the UK, by SMA, allowing H2ecO to adjust protected inverter settings to maximise system performance.
