About Solar Onboarding 101

Solar is becoming a bigger part of our energy infrastructure. Even if you don’t work for a solar company, it’s useful to understand how solar works and be able to have informed conversations about it.

This course was built for:

  • Utility customer service staff, especially electric co-ops
  • Policy and code staff within the government
  • Non-solar construction or building companies
  • Building inspectors
  • Real estate agents

What we’ll cover in 101:

  • Solar industry snapshot to understand the growth and trajectory of the industry
  • Solar system basics; including common electricity terminology, the components that make up a rooftop solar system, types of solar systems, and solar safety
  • Main customer motivations for installing rooftop solar
  • What typically included in a residential rooftop solar proposal
  • An overview of the most common types of net metering policies along with an overview of other relevant financial information
  • Frequently asked questions

About HeatSpring Membership

HeatSpring Membership is a bundle of learning opportunities that would otherwise cost a lot more. Here’s what you get:

  1. Extended access to paid courses. All of our courses come with 1-year of unlimited access. Sometimes people get busy and don’t finish, but they don’t want to pay for the class again. This is original reason we created HeatSpring membership. Now you can pay the small monthly fee for as long as you need to finish the class and get your certificate of completion.
  2. Certificates of completion for all free courses. We have lots of teams that use our free courses for learning and professional development. If earning certificates of completion help with tracking and motivation, then membership is a really affordable tool to get better results for your team.
  3. Member access to premium courses. With membership you get access to a bunch of premium courses that you would normally have to pay a lot more to take. Sometimes they carry CEUs. We try to add a new course every month to keep it fresh. Like all of our premium courses, once you’re enrolled you have a full year to take the course.

Membership is intended to lower the barrier to learning so you can make professional development a regular habit. Membership is also available to Teams. Team discounts are applied automatically and team memberships have all of the same benefits as the individual memberships.
