    PV 201 (PV Site Assessment)

    The Site Assessment Certificate Program is a program of the MREA offered through the Illinois Solar Energy Association (ISEA), a recognized training provider. The MREA/ISEA  Site Assessment Certificate Program trains individuals to provide site-specific renewable energy assessment and consumer education. Since August of 2012, the PV Site Assessment Certificate Program has been accredited by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC).

    The MREA /ISEA Site Assessor Certificate provides skills training needed by professionals engaging consumers in renewable energy systems for their homes and businesses. Site assessors evaluate the energy consumption of a household or business, as well as the solar or wind resource at the location. They help clients understand system options and their benefits. They work with clients to recommend the site and size of the solar or wind system that will best fit their needs. Site assessors also estimate system production and identify the cost, incentives, and financing options available.


    Course Description
    Participants in this eight-hour course will learn how to perform a PV site assessment for a home or small business. The course will cover site assessment tools, load analysis, energy efficiency recommendations, array placement options, basic system sizing, cost estimates, and evaluating existing infrastructure on site. Participants will learn how to access online tools for solar resource analysis, PV system performance calculators, and incentives.

    Course Objectives

    • Use site assessment tools
