[Download not found] cover, 27 pages. This booklet contains safety recommendations for people who work with PV systems.

[Download not found] (SAND87-0804) Soft cover, 56 pages. Provides an introduction to understanding the characteristics, including economics, of PV-powered water pumping systems. Although thousands of these systems exist worldwide, many potential users do not know how to decide whether or not PV pumping systems are an attractive option for them. This report provides current information on design options, feasibility assessment, and system procurement so that the reader can make an informed decision about water pumping systems, especially those powered with PV.

[Download not found] Soft cover, spiral-bound, 47 pages. Sandia’s PV Systems Assistance Center staff worked with the National Park Service (NPS) in 1994 to survey and assess current PV systems and potential application opportunities throughout 367 NPS units. This document, which is a summary of the results of that survey, also identifies barriers to PV use and includes listings of NPS existing PV systems and proposed PV projects, NPS guidelines on environmental emissions and electrical power generation, and a draft Sandia-generated renewable energy site assessment.

[Download not found] (SAND96-1466) Soft cover, spiral-bound, 59 pages. The USDA Forest Service and DOE, through Sandia’s PV Systems Assistance Center, formed a partnership to expand the use of photovoltaics and other renewable energy systems in the nation’s forests. Its work includes a comprehensive survey of current Forest Service use of photovoltaics, and the development of pilot projects. The survey identified more than 500 existing photovoltaic systems and better than 98 percent owner satisfaction with the systems’ performance. In addition, more than 200 potential applications for photovoltaic systems were identified based on current power needs. This document describes the results of the first phase of this work and gives synopses of 11 of its pilot projects.

[Download not found] (SAND87-3146) Soft cover, 40 pages. This report examines various aspects of and issues associated with the growing interest in interconnecting PV systems with utilities. Included are sections on barriers to widespread use, specific system design issues, utility-specific issues, and an overview of the design and installation process. It also presents a guide to applicable codes, standards, and related documents. Identifying and solving the potential problems associated with utility interconnection of dispersed power generation systems will assist in enabling the technology to develop and emerge into the marketplace.

[Download not found] (SAND93-1642) Soft cover, 48 pages. Introduces PV technology to those specializing in development activities. Examples of actual installations illustrate the many services supplied by PV systems in development applications, including water pumping, lighting, health care, refrigeration, communications, and a variety of productive uses. The various aspects of the technology are explored to help potential users evaluate whether PV can assist in achieving their organizational goals. Basic system design, financing techniques, and the importance of infrastructure are included, along with additional sources of information and major U.S. PV system suppliers.

[Download not found] (SAND2000-1124) Soft cover, 52 pages. Features 200 color photographs of photovoltaic installations throughout the United States, illustrating the diversity of PV. Minimal text highlights how PV can benefit individual homeowners, utilities, the military, and others. Designed to expand the possibilities for using PV as an enabling technology.

[Download not found] (SAND2001-3863P) Soft cover, 60 pages. Features 150 color photographs of photovoltaic installations located on Indian lands throughout the United States, illustrating how PV meets the needs of Indian tribes as they seek to abide by the Seven Generations philosophy. Includes tribal and other contacts.
