Solar photovoltaic system installations are continuing to increase as the price becomes more feasible in the many markets. Appraisers will find the valuation a challenge without knowledge of the technology and data available to use the methodology most appropriate. Appraisers must expand their knowledge base to understand how electricity is priced, how solar PV is priced, and how solar PV functions to develop a credible value. If you are seeking education that will hone your skills or teach you new ones, this is the course for you. Residential and commercial appraisers will work together to apply an income capitalization approach and cost approach to valuing energy produced for solar PV systems. All you need is a smartphone, IPad, or laptop computer with Internet access, and you’ll be able to use a free online software to value the energy that solar systems produce. Please note. This course does not address utility-scale solar (solar farms), solar thermal, or other on-site renewable energy generation.
