Empowering Communities Through Industry-Leading Solar Evaluation Tools and Resources


Many homeowners and local businesses are unaware of existing solar financing and evaluation tools that can help them make the decision to “go solar.”


Learn about selected industry-leading solar PV evaluation tools and financing resources that are available to communities across the country, from the National Renewable Energy Lab’s interactive PV system sizing calculator to an innovative marketplace that does for solar what Expedia does for air travel. Most importantly, participants will learn how to increase awareness of these resources throughout their communities by using effective promotion strategies.


Also presenting are Geoff Klise of Sandia National Laboratories and Jamie Johnson of Energy Sense Finance, who will provide a brief overview of PV ValueTM, a tool jointly developed by their organizations that helps professionals in the real estate industry determine the value of a new or existing photovoltaic (PV) system installed on residential and commercial properties.
