March 12, 2013
From sunmaxxsolar.com: “SunMaxx Solar collaborates with Wisconsin Technical College System” – SunMaxx Solar, a leading vertically integrated manufacturer of solar thermal systems and components is delighted to announce their partnership with the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) to provide both certified solar hot water training and solar thermal systems for 8 colleges in the system.
SunMaxx began working with Earlyn Hanson, Instructor and Project Manager at the Wisconsin Technical College System back in the Spring of 2012. The college system received a federal grant for the state’s Sector Alliance for the Green Economy (SAGE) project. This grant allowed WTCS to purchase necessary tools to allow their students hands on experience in solar thermal technology. WTCS purchased SunMaxx Pro Dealer Kits for the colleges involved in the program. These kits will provide students with a functioning, life-size demo solar hot water system to experiment with for training and educational purposes.
WTCS stimulates local economic development by providing the state with hands-on education that brings people and jobs together at incredibly high placement rates. They offer over 300 career programs, including two-year associate degrees, one and two year technical diplomas, short term technical certificates and customized training and technical assistance directly to business and industry.
Edward Gunn, SunMaxx Sales Manager says, “We’re thrilled to be working with the Wisconsin Technical College System by providing industry leading equipment for their classrooms and certified solar thermal training to their instructors!”
