A graduate trainee solar PV design engineer joins Leeds Solar's design team

Leeds Solar today welcomes Jonathan Ramos to our solar PV design team.



To help us cope with a significant upsurge in enquiries and installations since the start of 2013, Leeds Solar have now taken on a new graduate trainee member of our solar design team.

Jonathan joins us as a fast track graduate trainee solar PV design engineer, under the supervision of our experienced senior systems designer, Ian Andrews, and installation manager Gavin Andrews.

Originally from Burgos in northern Spain, Jonathan graduated with distinction from a 3 years Masters level engineering degree in Photovoltaic Solar Energy from the Institute of Solar Energy at Madrid Polytechnic University in the summer of 2012.

Jonathan also holds an Electrical Engineering technical degree from the Superior Polytechnic University of Burgos, which as a 5 year degree is equivalent to an MEng in the UK


Shading specialism

With a masters dissertation project investigating the impact of shading on solar PV cells and panels, Jonathan will add to Leeds Solar design teams already excellent understanding of this extremely important and complex aspect of solar PV systems design.

Within our design team Leeds Solar now have an MSc in Energy & Environment, BSc in Environmental Management, MEng in Solar PV, and Technical Degree in Electrical Engineering, as well as all the usual electrical and solar PV installation courses

This level of experitise within our design team gives Leeds Solar the ability to fully model and design even the most complex solar PV installations, including full modelling and assessment of the impact of shading throughout the year, as well as producing performance predictions for even shaded solar PV systems that we're prepared to guarantee to within 5% of our predictions (assuming average sunlight levels).


2013 the year the UK solar industry bounces back.
