What is PV GreenCard

The PV GreenCard has been developed to promote safe and high-quality Solar PV installations. The PV GreenCard Programme focuses on education, skills development, and training to build installer capacity as well as improve standards development and compliance in line with international best practice in association with SAPVIA (South African Photovoltaic Industry Association).

PV GreenCard Report

The PV GreenCard is an as built report for the Solar PV system owner and a checklist for the installer which qualified installers provide to their clients on the completion of a project. The PV GreenCard contains details of the installation such as, what sort of PV modules and PV inverters were used, as well a checklist of all of the necessary installation steps that were completed.

Benefits of PV GreenCard

The installer is able to use the PV GreenCard to declare compliance with relevant standards as well as safety guidelines for PV installation. This will provide investor confidence, commitment from participating industry players and empowerment of the Solar PV system owner. Only SAPVIA-certified installers are allowed to issue the PV GreenCard to their clients.

Noltrix Training Centre is designed to accommodate up to 12 persons for a full engaging and interactive experience between trainees and the host. Participants work through multiple examples and because of the small group each training session can be adapted so that no person gets left behind. After each day a Q&A session is held to discuss anything related to the day’s topic. We share installation techniques as well as do’s and don’ts from pas experience in the solar industry.
