Model Interconnection Procedures

IREC first developed Model Interconnection Procedures in 2005 in an effort to capture emerging best practices in this vital area. Several important evolutions in best practices are synthesized into the 2013 Model Interconnection Procedures, last updated in 2009.

The important advances incorporated into these model procedures include:

New Orleans Solar Calculator

The City of New Orleans and its partners provide this New Orleans Solar Calculator website as a public service to assist persons in estimating solar potential and the potential value of installing solar panels at locations in the City. The accuracy of any information contained in or calculated from this website is not warranted by the City or its partners. Additionally, the parties specifically do not represent, promise or guarantee that you will achieve the outcomes estimated by this site or that the estimated savings will be obtained.

Solar Ready: An Overview of Implementation Practices

This report explores three mechanisms for encouraging solar ready building design and construction: solar ready legislation, certification programs for solar ready design and construction, and stakeholder education. These methods are not mutually exclusive, and all, if implemented well, could contribute to more solar ready construction.

Analysis of Web Based Solar Photovoltaic Mapping Tools

A PV mapping tool visually represents a specific site and calculates PV system size and projected electricity production. This report identifies the commercially available solar mapping tools and thoroughly summarizes the source data type and resolution, the visualization software program being used, user inputs, calculation methodology and algorithms, map outputs, and development costs for each map.

A Program Plan for Photovoltaic Buildings in Florida

This document outlines plans developed by the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) to support photovoltaic buildings application in the state through the first decade of the 21st century. The emphasis of this program is on identifying and increasing the value of rooftop systems to targeted end users through the use of application experiments.

Study Guide for Photovoltaic System Installers and Sample Examination Questions

This study guide presents some of the basic cognitive material that individuals who install and maintain PV systems should understand. This information is intended primarily as a study guide to help better prepare for the NABCEP PV installer examination but does not provide all of the information needed for completing the certification examination.
