Photovoltaics on buildings: specifying and evaluating project proposals

Course Summary

PV systems convert sunlight directly to electricity. It allows a building to save electricity costs from SP PowerGrid and stand out from the crowd, by enhancing its environmental and high-tech appeal. Just a few years ago, PV projects required additional incentive to make them commercially viable. But costs have declined such that projects achieves payback periods below 10 years, yielding attractive internal rates of return (IRR) of 8–12%. This applies to systems that perform properly for 20–25 years, in line with PV module power warranties.
Many aspiring PV systems owners find themselves poorly prepared when requesting system proposals and evaluating offers, it might be difficult to distinguish a good system from a mediocre one. Hence, we have invited an experienced PV industry professional to clear your doubts.
