Training Questions

Look here for answers to the most commonly asked questions about our training courses.

Q. I'm interested in becoming a solar installer, can I attend your training?
A.

Our training is designed for MCS accredited installers and so doesn’t cover the basics of solar PV installation. If you’re looking to become an installer, you can attend our course for a £100 attendance fee, however it won’t provide an official qualification and it may be more beneficial to complete the MCS accreditation before attending our course.

Q. How often are your training courses?
A.

We usually run our training once a month though this can vary depending on demand. Please contact us for our next available date or check the training page.

Q. Do you offer training in my area?
A.

We only have one manufacturing facility which is located in South Wales. This is where we provide our training as it includes a tour of our factory as well as installation instruction on our training roof.

The Biggest Solar Panel Yet

This week, GB-Sol succeeded in manufacturing the largest module in its 20 year solar manufacturing history.

GB-Sol are always keen to take on any challenge and producing a panel bigger than ever before was especially interesting. Each panel measuring 3.1m x 1.4m was composed of two layers of 6mm glass. They weighed over 120kg and required specialist equipment to transport around the factory.

Each one contained 90 solar PV cells providing 425Wp.

If you have any unusual solar PV requirements, GB-Sol are here to come up with a solution. Please get in touch today.

PV Slates - Bognor Regis Detached House

We are pleased to reveal the latest pictures from one of our PV Slate installations in Bognor Regis.

The 186 PV Slates were installed in November 2017 across the large roof at the rear of the property. They blend seamlessly with the surrounding natural blue-grey slates. 

The customer was ‘delighted’ with the look of the roof.

To get a quotation for PV Slate for your home or building project, please get in touch with your dimensioned drawings and we’ll be happy to provide further details.
