South Africa´s Premier Training Institute on Solar Power


The maxx | solar academy is a non-profit training centre for solar power. It was established in 2011 by the Gernan training institute DGS Solarschool Thuringia, with financial support from maxx | solar energy (Pty) Ltd. In May 2011 maxx | solar academy started with the first course on photovoltaik (PV) in Cape Town. From 2012 onwards the academy will offer a training programme, comprising a wide range of training courses for technicians, consultants, architects and designers, in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Bloemfontein.

The training programme was developed by a German-South African team, adapting existing DGS Solarschool Thuringia training programmes that were succesfully offered in Germany, Southeast Asia an Latin America, for South African conditions.
