Solar Installation Games
In this series of games, your students will learn how to properly and safely prepare for and install a variety of different kinds of residential solar systems. The games were built in partnership with Lumina Solar, a large residential solar installer, Abell Foundation, a leading foundation focused on improving the lives of residents in Baltimore City, and For Good Foundation, a leading foundation focused on the proliferation of clean energy.
These games are part of the Legends of Learning Career and Technical Education suite, which will be expanding over the next several months.

The solar industry is growing quickly with lots of opportunities for high-paying jobs in the green economy.
Successful solar installations require preparation and understanding of the key tools and equipment used at the job site. The workday begins in the warehouse where you check to make sure you have the right tools and equipment to perform a job and that your vehicle is clean and ready. Next, you travel to the job site and learn best practices of customer service and how to properly communicate with customers.
On-site installation begins with a review of safety protocols covering ladder placement to roof harnesses. Then, the system design must be verified and possibly adjusted before installing the racking, solar modules, inverters, disconnects, and other equipment. Installation techniques cover microinverter, power optimizer, and string inverter systems. At the end of the installation, the system is connected to the grid and you produce clean energy that harnesses the power of the sun.
Are you ready to be a part of the clean energy future?
