    DETAILS

    As the United States continues to search for energy alternatives, properties improved with solar PV (photovoltaic) are becoming more common, creating demand for appraisers trained in properly valuing solar PV. Encountering a solar photovoltaic (PV) system could present a valuation problem that you may not be prepared to solve. As an appraiser appraising green properties, it is inevitable that you will encounter solar PV.  Even for those who don’t specialize in green properties, the likelihood that you will encounter solar PV in your practice is increasing. This hands-on course introduces you to solar terminology, and through real-life examples and case studies, on both residential and commercial properties, shows you how to solve solar-related valuation problems. This course will focus on solar PV most commonly encountered in commercial and residential appraisal/consulting assignments. It will not focus on utility-scale solar (solar farms), solar thermal, or other forms of on-site renewable energy generation.  

    Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to: 
    • Comprehend the solar PV language 
    • Identify and understand the documents and data necessary to value PV solar systems 
    • Describe, understand, and analyze solar PV components and their relevance to market valuation 
    • Develop a credible value opinion using tools, worksheets, and resources provided in the course 
    • Recognize potential valuation problems, including USPAP and lender underwriter concerns. 

    Note. This course is in the Valuation of Sustainable Buildings Professional Development Program.
