AUTOCAD, Revit, and Google Sketch-Up 8.0 to design for installation accuracy
Using AUTOCAD, Revit, and Google Sketch-Up 8.0 to design for installation accuracy and smart PV design: Join SolPowerPeople and Anthony Regino, Project Manager at CDI Technology, for part one of a two part lecture 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 at 12PM Central (10AM Pacific, 2PM Eastern).
On Thursday August 8th at 12PM CT, SolPowerPeople will welcome Anthony Regino to share his expertise on solar PV system design, and how to use software and smart methodologies to reduce costs, save time, and increase system performance.
In part one of this two part series, Regino will discuss how accuracy of design can be achieved through the use of software programs like AutoCAD, Revit, and Google Sketch UP 8.0. He will review how to utilize these tools to maximize effectiveness of design to achieve reduced system install costs and time required for design adjustments during the installation process. He will also review how to use these software programs to generate accurate estimates for proposals.
Part Two of this lecture series will delve deeper into improving system design by preventing common mistakes in design and using the software to generate an accurate proposals (REGISTER HERE FOR PART TWO).
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 atCDI Techology, 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 Developement 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 reduntant part of the grid. He is also an innovator and inventor- his latest project is a PV Desk that allows you to bring your desk outside and still generate energy to be functional. This design is frameless and is patent pending.
Mr. Regino has taught PV design and installation for NST, Clean Tech, Imagine Solar, IBEW Local 60, and has consulted on numberous jobs throughout the United States that include Utility Scale, Residential, and Commercial Scale projects. Mr. Regino is one of the youngest NABCEP Certified installers that practice PV in the United States.
