SIT is installing the first grid-tied solar electric generating panels in Invercargill as it works together with manufacturers and distributors, creating an affordable package for solar electric generation in Southland.

The solar panels are installed on SIT’s Renewable Energy Centre at the main campus on Tay Street, serving as a demonstration model for all of New Zealand. SIT will also offer a specialised training programme on installation and setup of the photovoltaic (PV) system that’s open to anyone, but primarily for electricians and code officials.
