Commercial Solar Electric Systems

Summary and Final Tasks


In this lesson, we talked about the electricity demand and load profile changes due to the addition of solar into the grid. We also discussed the duck effect and the shape of the curve as a result of solar energy availability during the daytime and its absence during the nighttime.

Our class has reached its end and we hope we covered all information needed to prepare you as a future solar professional and equipped you with the right tools. Our main goal as a solar option is to expose you to various scenarios you might face in the real-world when dealing with solar systems in terms of system main components, sizing and design, permitting, documentation, code compliance, interconnection methods, safety regulations, commissioning, operating and maintenance, monitoring, and most importantly the effect of PV on the grid.
