“Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems provide so many benefits to both building owners and the Washington DC area, including increasing property values and reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” says Maureen Guttman AIA, president of BCAP. “By empowering local design professionals to incorporate solar PV in their designs, they are providing greater value to their clients and helping to create a better community.”

Registered attendees will learn to:

  • Educate clients about the benefits of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems
  • Incorporate solar PV systems  in new construction and major renovation work
  • Find the financial incentives available for solar PV
  • Differentiate themselves in the marketplace by offering solar expertise


This one-time only training is partially underwritten by the U.S Department of Energy SunShot Initiative. Event registration is $300 (discounts are available for students, AIA and ASHRAE members). Continuing education credits (6.5 LU/HSW) will be provided to attendees.

“Last year was a record-breaking year for solar installations across the nation,” says Guttman. “As the cost of solar continues to drop and exciting new products come onto the market, demand for solar is increasing. Our goal is to make sure designers have the tools needed to succeed in this ripe marketplace.”
