At "The Technology of Solar Photovoltaics in the Lighted Environment" session at LightFair International on June 5, 2014, Jeff Shields of WFLI-JAX and Stephanie Holloran of Solar Electric Power Co. focused on how clients can incorporate solar photovoltaic (PV) systems into projects. They focused on the four types of solar PV:

  • Stand-alone 
  • Grid-tied solar 
  • Battery back-up 
  • Hybrid solar

Depending on the type of project, they said, one of the above options may be appropriate. They provided project samples, and discussed PV system controls.
