Session six of the Agricultural Solar Electric Investment Analysis Webinar Series draws upon lessons learned in previous sessions to construct a simulation model to evaluate a PV solar project. The System Advisory Model (SAM) developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory helps developers, installers, and potential system owners estimate the system production and financial impacts of renewable energy projects. This six-part Agricultural Solar Electric Investment Analysis Webinar Series will provide you with resources and tools to help evaluate photovoltaic solar electric system proposals to make fully informed investment decisions. Although the webinars are geared to an agricultural audience, the information that will be shared applies to anyone looking for information on making a wise solar energy investment.
