Job Description for Solar Energy Systems Designer

A solar energy systems designer is a professional in alternate energy who designs solar panel collection systems, including the way they deliver and modulate energy to homes, businesses and industrial enterprises. The designer normally uses a variety of calculations that incorporate expected solar cell energy collection, the power it can deliver and the means by which it can deliver power. The designer then recommends ways to optimize energy usage to take advantage of solar energy. Solar energy systems designers must work with clients to assess their existing power needs and investigate opportunities to reduce or mitigate this power usage. They also gather as much climactic data as possible to perform calculations and analysis on solar power expectancy, and then determine the needed amount and placement of solar panels.
