Solar Resource Assessment and Economics

12.2 Discussion Activity: What is a Superior Design Team?


So far, you have been working individually, or with the feedback from a peer, to design a project proposal. This proposal has elements of solar resource assessment, financial assessment, social and policy awareness, all supported by a sustainability approach to energy systems. If that seems like a lot for one individual to wrap their mind around, you're right!

In our last discussion activity of the semester, I would like you to post your dream team of integrative design. Imagine that you just started a small solar design firm. You now need to hire a team to help you build your company name by reputation of being highly reliable, economically competitive, and producing high-quality solar projects.

What kind of members would you want in your team, and what skills would they need to create a balanced business?

Post your thoughts on the Lesson 12 Discussion Forum in Canvas. Do not forget to provide feedback and contribute to your peers' posts.
