Summary and Final Tasks


Let's revisit the scenarios from the beginning of this lesson. By the end of this lesson, you should be able to communicate well with the utility personnel to ensure that safe commissioning steps and procedures are followed before starting the PV system. Furthermore, you should be able to address the main O&M and monitoring questions the client asked at the beginning of this lesson. At this point in the class, our solar professionals are loaded with all basic information for design and installation of any PV systems with different sizes and types.

Being a solar professional requires a broad understanding of technologies and strategies in addition to solar design and installation knowledge such as: project management, financial analysis, communication, maintenance scheduling, monitoring networks and communication for data acquisition systems, and the list goes on.

In the next lesson, we will wrap up our class by discussing the impact of PV systems on the utility grid. As more PV are being added to the grid, there must be technical challenges to consider and understand when dealing with utilities to better negotiate and understand their requirements. So stay tuned!! See you next week.
