Course Description

The Commercial Photovoltaic System Sizing and Design Course will improve your ability to develop an optimized commercial solar system design. You will create additional financial value to your solar design by changing the array size, orientation and tilt. The methodology involves comparing the site load profile to the solar generation profile as recommended in section 9.1 of the Clean Energy Council’s 30 –100 KW Design Guidelines. Throughout the course you will benefit from both practical and theoretical approaches and assessments that draw on real life scenarios.
