Residential PV System Designer
Residential PV System Designer

A residential PV System Designer devises small-scale photovoltaic systems—grid-tied and standalone—for individual homes and multifamily housing.

In a small firm, the System Designer may participate in site assessment and/or installation. After determining client needs and site characteristics, a residential PV System Designer completes all necessary calculations to size the solar energy system, select its components, incorporate battery storage as needed, and establish all of the project’s electrical and mechanical specifications. The System Designer may then provide complete permit- and construction-ready plan sets; work with code officials, distributors, and subcontractors; communicate with building departments and other authorities to facilitate permit approvals; and participate in quality assurance, project evaluation, and performance assessment.
