Solar Energy International (SEI) is excited to announce its collaboration with Fluke as a megawatt-level industry sponsor through SEI’s Industry Sponsorship Program. Fluke achieved megawatt sponsor status through a donation of professional electronic test tools and software to be featured in SEI’s industry-leading lab training facility in Paonia, Colorado.

With thousands of students from around the world traveling to SEI’s industry-leading lab every year, these students will get hands-on experience with Fluke equipment, experience that will be the foundation of their future solar industry careers.
