TOMORROW: Dr. Loo: DIY 5kW Grid-Tied Solar Photovoltaic System


Solar photovoltaic (PV) can be very cost-effective. What does it take to install a system? This talk will give you the overview from design to grid-tied the system. The system to be discussed was installed in May 2014. At this writing, the 5kW PV system has produced over 34 MWh. The cost of install was $1.08 per watt after 30% federal tax incentive
