ONTILITY Launches Solar Training In Los Angeles, CA And Opens West Coast Office

updated | Author's Website

ONTILITY announces its expansion of operations on the West Coast. The company, an industry leader in solar training, solar product distribution, support services, and turnkey solar EPC solutions, will launch Solar Training classes in Los Angeles, CA by offering a NABCEP PV Installer Certification Exam Preparation course on Sept. 15-16. Concurrently, ONTILITY will also open a West Coast sales office.

Expanding its operations to include California is a logical step for ONTILITY and is a direct response to the continued rapid growth of the solar energy industry nationwide. “We are very excited to be opening a customer support and sales office and offering solar training in California. We bring a unique combination of product and service that the West Coast market needs,” said Tom Pash, ONTILITY President and CEO. “The solar industry continues to grow very fast, more than 50% last year, and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.” Mr. Pash continued. “Along with that market growth, business and employment opportunities are growing as well. Job growth this year alone is at about 26%, adding 24,000 new jobs.”

ONTILITY’s NABCEP PV Installer Certification Exam Preparation Course helps students pass the highly-coveted North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) Solar PV Installer Exam and is being offered for the first time in Los Angeles in partnership with Advanced Computing Institute at their headquarters on Wilshire Blvd. This intensive two-day workshop, now offered in seven cities across the US, is the solar energy industry’s most thorough preparatory class for the NABCEP(R) Photovoltaic (PV) Installer Certification exam. Students review advanced PV, electrical and safety topics, and discuss test-taking strategies. Cost for the two-day class is $595.

John Berry, ONTILITY’s Training Sales Director notes, “ONTILITY Solar Training is a truly comprehensive approach to professional solar training and career development. It’s much more than workshops and seminars. ONTILITY Solar Training provides solar energy courses and career paths which are in tune with what the industry and market demand.” Following its launch in Los Angeles in September, ONTILTIY Solar Training will offer a full schedule of solar design, installation and sales courses.

ONTILITY’s first West Coast sales office will open under the direction of Patrick Clifford, an experienced veteran of the solar energy industry with great knowledge of project coordination, customer service, and the drive to deliver effective solutions to customers. Formerly, Patrick was President/CEO of SDE Solar Inc. where he acquired vast experience in both residential and commercial markets. Mr. Clifford commented, “I am very excited to join ONTILITY and introduce this company to my California clients. ONTILITY, with its world class warehouse and tremendous purchasing power, can meet the needs of the California market. Couple that with the support services and training and you’ve got the perfect fit for this market.”
