A U.S. agency wants a definitive report on the emission reduction impacts from solar photovoltaic systems.CINCINNATI, Ohio, US, 2001-07-09 [SolarAccess.com] A U.S. agency wants a definitive report on the emission reduction impacts from solar photovoltaic systems. The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a solicitation for a ‘National Assessment for Photovoltaic Generated Electricity (#SOL PR-CI-01-12087). The contractor will prepare a final report to determine the U.S. emission reduction impacts of PV generated electricity when solar systems are installed as power supplies for buildings. The national assessment will be based on data provided by existing PV systems that have been installed at various sites throughout the U.S., explains the document. The sites will be selected to affect a meaningful statistical data set based on solar irradiance and utility power plant emission profiles. The data sets may be supplemented with simulated PV output profiles from incident solar irradiance and temperature considerations. The project should be completed with 12 months, with a contract expected to be issued by the end of July. EPA wants a firm fixed price to complete the work.
