AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

South Georgia Technical College will now be able to provide training in solar energy installation.

The school signed a letter of agreement with MAGE SOLAR Thursday that will bring the Mage Solar Academy Entry Level Photo-voltaic course to the Americus College.

Solar energy is the fastest growing alternative energy source in the United States. The intense five day training course is designed to give basic knowledge necessary to begin a career in the industry.

"We feel solar in the state of Georgia is one that will be very beneficial because of the amount of sunlight Georgia gets,"  said South Georgia Tech President  Sparky Reeves.

The first course will begin September 26th. There are still spots open in the course, if you are interested in signing up you can call the South Georgia Technical College Continuing Education office at 229-931-2040.
