Sustainability Series: Solar Technology

Our monthly Sustainability Series workshop in New Orleans, presented with AIA and USGBC-Louisiana, was held Thursday night. This presentation offered an in-depth explanation of solar technology, the best practices for designing and installing solar, and the current state of solar globally and in Louisiana. We discussed:

  • Types of solar applications
  • How solar energy systems are rated and compared
  • Innovative new design practices to integrate solar technology into residential and commercial buildings

We also presented a case study of a home's energy usage before and after the installation of a solar panel system, with photos, videos, and online monitoring data.
