/PRNewswire/ -- The new
Fronius Service Program
helps photovoltaic (PV) system installers maximize customer energy yields by certifying them to complete board-level replacements in the field, reducing system downtime to minutes instead of days. Launched by the Fronius
Solar Electronics Division in
, the Fronius Service Program will offer training sessions frequently throughout the year for the Fronius IG, IG Plus and CL grid-connected PV inverters, along with the Fronius DATCOM data communications system for individual PV system monitoring.
is dedicated to empowering PV system installers, along with the entire solar distribution chain that supports Fronius
products, with the necessary know-how to positively impact their customers," said Thomas Enzendorfer, Director of Sales and Marketing, Fronius
Solar Electronics Division. "Through hands-on factory training by Fronius
experts, the Fronius Service Program empowers PV system installers with the information they need to ensure fast, accurate servicing that limits system downtime."
Each two-day Fronius Service Program training session allows installers to earn eight North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) credit hours. When participants pass the program's evaluation test, Enzendorfer said, they will be certified to complete board-level replacements at a customer site, which is more efficient than other inverter systems that have to be completely removed and shipped to the manufacturer. That delay increases PV system downtime and reduces energy yield, which impacts system return on investment.
takes pride in manufacturing the industry's premier PV inverters, as well as offering world class customer service, which it has been doing for more than 20 years in the U.S. and globally," Enzendorfer said.
