Appraisers should have a basic understanding of how solar photovoltaic systems work and understand appraisal methodology prior to taking this class. A growing trend toward installations of residential solar photovoltaic systems leaves many appraisers facing appraisal problems they are not equipped to handle. Appraisers who focus on appraisals for federal-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, however, upon review of the course and seminar material available, it was clear there were some topics that were not covered or had limited coverage. This class will focus on photovoltaic system information that will bridge the gap of knowledge not already offered in educational offerings today. Participants are encouraged to take additional educational offerings to acquire sufficient background in this growing topic to produce a credible appraisal report.

Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to:
•Describe a host-owned solar photovoltaic array 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
