Creating Smart PV System Designs
#SolarMOOC, September 12th @12PM
Join SolPowerPeople and Anthony Regino, Project Manager at CDI Technology, for the the second segment on how to reduce project costs and increase system performance through thoughtful design and the use of smart tools and software to design for accuracy on solar projects: THURSDAY September 12th at 12PM Central (10AM Pacific, 2PM Eastern).
In part one of this two part series, Regino discusses how accuracy of design can be achieved through the use of software programs like AutoCAD, Revit, and Google Sketch UP 8.0. He demonstrated through the review of a successful system design how these tools can be utilized to maximize effectiveness of design to achieve reduced system install costs and time required for design adjustments during the installation process.
This second lecture will delve deeper into improving system design by preventing common mistakes in design and using the software to generate accurate proposals.
Anthony Regino is a NABCEP Certified PV Installer with a BA in Architecture from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He works as a Project Manager at CDI Technology, in San Antonio, TX. Aspects of his expertise include grid management, electrical, data/comm, PV, Wind, Geothermal, Residential and Commercial construction, and design.
Regino is the designer and Lead Project Manager for the largest PV installation at Fort Sam Houston, the Valero Energy Corporation Headquarters that consists of a Data Center, Child Development Center, and 2 Large Parking Garages. He is also responsible for creating PV maps for PV Installers that operate on the CPS Grid in the downtown network. This visual grid interaction allows installers to build in specific parts of the city without disrupting the redundant part of the grid.
Mr. Regino has taught PV design and installation for NST, Clean Tech, Imagine Solar, IBEW Local 60, and has consulted on numerous jobs throughout the United States that include Utility Scale, Residential, and Commercial Scale projects.
