Course Description

Current information for would-be photovoltaic systems for residential and commercial. Includes equipment options, pricing, tax incentives, MECO circuit saturation, and current options for grid-tied or off-grid battery storage. Discussion about energy efficiency strategies to employ before installing panels. Bring your MECO statement and roof layout and size a solar electric system correctly for your needs. Over-sizing or under-sizing your system can cost thousands of dollars in lost savings.
