Rooftop Solar Site Selection | Clean Power Hour Ep.2

Rooftop Solar Site Selection | Clean Power Hour Ep.2

On this episode of the Clean Power Hour (published July 21, 2020) with co-hosts Tim Montague and John Weaver we discuss site selection criteria for commercial rooftop solar (C&I solar; behind the meter solar PV): roof condition (less than 10 years preferred), available ground if ground mount; electric load vs. available space for solar, grid infrastructure, and how a facility owner will evaluate the opportunity (ROI). John Weaver gives updates on two recent blog posts of his: 1. NREL Operations and Maintenance Costs spreadsheet model; and 2. Massachusetts seeking 100% clean energy.

We love to hear from our listeners so please comment on the podcasts and give us suggestions for topics you would like us to cover.
