Assignment Assuming you are working on the installation of the PV systems and your task is to plan and manage the entire project from design to installation stages.

Part 1: For each scenario, prepare an Excel spreadsheet that specifies each task and timeline that should be followed to complete the design and installation of the PV system:
  1. Residential PV rooftop system (10 kW)
  2. Utility Scale ground mount PV system (5 MW)
  3. Share solar system (100 kW)
(Hint: use the flowchart of the PV project process as a guideline for the steps)

Part 2: Identify the safety procedures and equipment for each of the scenarios to align with OSHA regulations in regards to PV installation. (Hint: use the Required Reading "Green Job Hazards: Solar Energy," as a reference.)


Prepare a report showing Parts 1 and 2. The report is to be no more than three double-spaced pages in a 12 point font. Include the tables from the Excel spreadsheets.
