This 1 1/2 day workshop will introduce participants to the basic concepts, tools, materials and construction and engineering techniques needed to design and construct systems that convert solar resources into electricity with photovoltaic (PV) technologies. Participants will learn how to assess the solar resources available at a particular site and how to use that information to estimate the energy production and economics of a PV system. Participants will learn how to design and construct safe and reliable code compliant photovoltaic systems.
The workshop will address contemporary trends, products and policies and incentives. It will include lectures and power point presentations, site assessment and system design and construction activities, computer modeling, and exploration of numerous systems we have set up around the Department of Technology & Environmental Design at Appalachian State University.
