TOP REVIEWS FROM SOLAR ENERGY CODES, PERMITTING AND ZONING
Very good course for todays energy need worldwide.
Material is very good and so simple from engineering point of view also gives the basic s and base line to establish solid back from nd about solar energy .
The course is insightful and knowledgeable too. It was a step in the right direction for me.
one the better things im doing with my job since first course i have learned so much . ty to the professor and the school for these classes
About the Solar Energy for Engineers, Architects and Code Inspectors Specialization
This specialization provides an overview of solar photovoltaics (PV), intricacies of solar system design, and a framework for solar PV project management. Targeted for engineers, HVAC installers, architects and building code inspectors, it is also appropriate for anyone considering a career in the growing renewable energy field of solar power. Courses introduce how PV operates and the anatomy of solar electric systems, the economics of solar power, pros and cons of different systems, considerations for designing a PV system, and fundamental code compliance. Materials primarily focus on solar PV in the United States. To learn more, view an overview at https://youtu.be/XjkKzbXqA6s.
