Residential PV Systems

Representative Technology

For the 2020 ATB, residential PV systems are modeled for a 6.3-kWDC fixed tilt (25°), roof-mounted system. Flat-plate PV can take advantage of direct and indirect insolation, so PV modules need not directly face and track incident radiation. This gives PV systems a broad geographical application, especially for residential PV systems.
