About This Book

This case study complements the book, Going Solar: A Solution Whose Time Has Come. Since the introduction of rooftop photovoltaic (PV) power systems, the solar industry has grown significantly, and technology has changed with it. Efficiencies have improved and the power generated per square foot has increased such that 290 kW and 300 kW panels are common.

Three case studies were created to explain and show the complete process from concept through installation and first power up for three systems—5.0 kW, 6.5 kW, and 7.4 kW. You’re holding the case study for a 6.4 kW solar power system.

It describes how a homeowner researched, purchased and had an operating solar system installed and activated to provide electrical
