Here at STI, we are installing solar and we are training others. Our NABCEP Entry level offerings are very popular here at our central Virginia headquarters. Being located in Richmond City’s Historic Museum District, we are very near I64 and I95. We have folks come in from for training from all parts of the globe, but we love to see our fellow Virginians come through those doors. Each NABCEP entry level class spends some of their lab time on real jobs being performed by the company. We first focus on power point to provide basic knowledge and then interweave hands-on training throughout the training week. And on Friday Afternoon, everyone will sit for the NABCEP Entry Level Exam. We have a high pass rate at our training center. Best case scenarios can involve students moving on to sit for the NABCEP Installer Certification Exam. At STI, we also offer the necessary OSHA training and Advanced Photovoltaic Installer Training. Some people call the NABCEP Entry level class- PV101 and The Advanced PV Training- PV202.

We need a total of 4 students to sit for a class, for it make financial sense on our end to run the class. So all deposits will be refunded two weeks prior to class start date, if the class is cancelled due to low enrollment. But we generally have a pretty good idea early on how class numbers are looking and will keep you updated on class status. We expect to have several full classes coming up this fall.

And Remember, it is training one day and installing the next at STI. Well in reality, even when we are having classes, we generally have a crew or two out in the field installing solar electric systems. We’re Busy!!! And it’s because we offer the most affordable rates for high quality components. If you are hearing that 3.20/watt is a “discounted” rate, we are hear to tell you this simply isn’t the case. For turnkey jobs of 5kw or more, we offer the very low rate of 2.75/watt. And this is with top of line modules, and solar edge optimizers. 

So when it comes to Solar anything in Richmond. Sustainable Technology Institute is your one stop shop. See you soon!
