Fronius USA LLC today donated two solar inverters to the Porter County Career and Technical Center. Electronics and Computer Technology Teacher David Kenning says this equipment will be installed on the roof of the Career and Technical Center where it will be connected to NIPSCO, and then they will sell the power back to them. Kenning says these inverters take in solar energy and converts it from DC power, to AC power, which is compatible to what NIPSCO and most other power companies in the US use to supply power to businesses and houses.
Kenning says having this technology will allow students to be become knowledge about the product as well as installation procedures, what it takes to put these devices in service and troubleshooting, because as alternative energy becomes more prevalent, companies are going to be seeking people who know their way around these devices.
