Lowering the Cost of Commercial PV Installs – AM

As solar panels hit their all-time low, the viability of Commercial Net Metering and FIT projects increases. But solar panels only represent 25% of the project costs – learn from industry experts how to reduce costs on all other aspects of commercial rooftop projects. We will review inverters, ballast mounts and solar options. Also, learn about ways to streamline installation processes, from designing to permitting to installation. HES has worked with hundreds of installers across Canada to complete successful and profitable commercial installations. Join HES and a series of guest speakers for a half day dedicated to “Lowering the Costs of Commercial PV Installations.”

Topics Include:

  • Cost benefit analysis of high efficiency versus low $/W modules in overall project costs
  • Comparison of Inverter options including Arc-fault, Rapid Shutdown and monitoring
  • Cost per watt for installation examples
  • Soft-cost analysis and how to reduce them
  • Net Metering Customer Benefit analysis
  • 2015 Electrical Code challenges and solutions

Solar + Storage Opportunities – PM

Storage systems coupled with solar are the emerging opportunity for solar installers – just look at the response to the Tesla Powerwall. HES and a panel of guest speakers will present a half day seminar on how to choose and integrate storage systems with solar to solve the challenges of:

  • Value Streams for PV Storage Systems
  • Grid-Tie in Connection-Constrained Situations
  • Storing Energy for Time of Use Metering
  • Residential and Commercial Backup Power
  • A Glimpse into the future of PV Storage

Topics will also include:

  • Opportunities for storage based systems
  • Designing & Sizing Storage Systems
  • Monitoring & Maintenance of Storage
  • Cost Breakdown of Solar with Storage for Residential & Small Commercial Systems
