The PV Trainers Network (PVTN) concluded its activities in Dec 2017 and is no longer providing trainings or technical assistance to local governments on solar PV. Local governments and other stakeholders should contact NYSERDA’s NY-Sun Program at with any training, technical assistance requests or general inquiries. The NY-Sun Program will continue to help local governments develop solar in their communities. For more information visit:

NY-Sun PV Trainers Network Program Overview Webinar

This webinar is designed to provide an overview of the education, training and technical assistance offered to municipalities under the PV Trainers Network. The PV Trainers Network is part of NY-Sun, Governor Cuomo’s initiative to greatly increase the amount of installed solar capacity throughout New York State. With support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), Meister Consultants Group has partnered with Entech Engineering, the City University of New York (CUNY), and a network of academic institutions to implement the Network. The Network offers trainings for a wide array of audiences involved in solar energy permitting, installation, inspection and approval processes including local policy makers, code enforcement officials, inspectors, engineers, architects, and first responders, among others.
