Abstract

The goal of this project was to assist the Alternative Technology Association by providing an enhanced assessment methodology for solar photovoltaic systems, emphasizing the development of a quantifiable evaluation of reliability and performance. To realize this goal, we interviewed industry leaders, surveyed solar consumers, and researched factors affecting solar photovoltaic system quality. The project resulted in a more comprehensive assessment methodology to aid the ATA in providing consultations that examine the value of solar photovoltaic systems.
