I figured out that best way to adopt the solar would be to follow the experience of what Telecom Companies were doing.If we have to install some 500 MW of solar each having 16 KWs of electric and 44 KW of thermal, it means we need to deskill the whole thing.. True some engineering needs to be done but no  high quality meetings and drawings are required. The equipment that I have suggested  is so much module like that even an unskilled labourer can erect it and connect it. As regards the out put and facing the sun I believe we do not require geniuses to do it.In this game the trainer must be very articuklate and technically competant having knowledge of High order.I have selected an Engineer with 20 Years of Experience who was GM in an electronic co.My experience of cost cutting is that more often than not,unskilled people sometimes pick up fast and they are more eager to asdvance in work. Infact I have taught sophisticated techniques to people whi never had engineering background.This way the cost of solar will be cut and I am sure my cost ill be just 26% of the cost f the established Solar installers. Now I believe state agencies  are also planning the same thing. . If we do not do it How can we penetrate the Rural maket? becuse there technical people are available with difficulty.There I believe it will be very effective to give written instructiins. If we want to extend the technology use deskilling is necessary part of it. I know there may be some problems but then even space exporation had it.

member photo I agree but the de-skilled profile should still maintain the safety afforded from qualified installers. I have been trying to get a training facility for wind and solar training on /near Chase Rd in Dearborn MI. we have 3 buildings there, and a 100 ft tower allotment. The owner an electrician is busy doing residential himself, but compatible, and I as an environmental pragmatist in the pursuit of promoting wise education programs am trying to manifest the staffing to accomodate the transition to reality. I just keep reaching out to someone who can see this an opportunity and help seek/fund it. I'll turn bolts, sweep floors whatever, besides I've already got a different Job just I'm looking for a better one.

member photo Excellent!
In fact I believe in empowering people. While I was i Africa I sent several people for training to Brazil/ Sweden/ Germany. When they came back there was lot of problems adjusting them because some of their seniors were not as much trained. I had to shift them horizontly.
There have been umpteen instances when I was burdened by totally unskilled people. I have trained them and given then instructions in their local language. I do believe De skilling is the way to cut costs. Fortunately India is a place where one has to do it every day.
