Course Overview and Learning Objectives
This 4-hour seminar will focus on solar photovoltaic system information that will bridge the gap of knowledge not already offered in other educational offerings today. A growing trend toward installations of residential solar photovoltaic systems leaves many appraisers facing appraisal problems they are not equipped to handle. Appraisers whose focus is appraisals for federally related lending purposes such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and FHA/HUD are required to have requisite knowledge or competency prior to accepting an assignment. A residential house with a solar photovoltaic (PV) system may create difficulty for them to meet the competency requirement without seminars or courses that sufficiently cover solar photovoltaic systems. Appraisal educational offerings regarding solar photovoltaic systems are available online and in person, with the most comprehensive being a two-day course offered by the Appraisal Institute. However, upon review of all the course and seminar material available, it was clear there were some topics that were not covered or had limited coverage. Participants are encouraged to take additional educational offerings to acquire sufficient background in this growing topic to produce a credible appraisal report. This class is focused on addressing issues that are not currently covered or not sufficiently covered in courses available to appraisers. This class is not a how-to appraise solar PV but it will point appraisers to resources including courses available to hone their skills on the appraisal process of valuing solar PV.
Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to:
• List the components of a solar PV system and the appraisal challenge it presents
• Analyze utility bills to arrive at an accurate kilowatt hour (kWh) cost
• Illustrate the importance of accurate solar PV system characteristics
• List studies, education, and resources regarding solar PV valuation
