The Second Hour will be presented by John Jevahirian of Michigan Solar.  He will speak on commercial applications of photovoltaic solar panels.  This session will explore what studies can be done to predict the size of your PV system, it's cost and what type of payback period you can expect given your building's current or projected energy usage.  John will also speak on ways of placing the PV's on your site and structure and speak about the most cost effective locations.
