Summary and Final Tasks


In this lesson, we covered a variety of topics starting from different methods to estimate energy demand including use of energy bills and detailed load analysis. By now you can assist your client in the scenario by providing an accurate PV system sizing taking into account factors that affect the energy output for both grid-connected and stand-alone systems. Furthermore, as a designer, you have the right tools to optimize your stand-alone system design by choosing the right critical design month and parameters.

In the next lesson, we will focus on the standards and regulations that govern PV system design and installation such as building, fire, and electrical building codes.
