Procuring Solar Energy: A Guide for Federal Facility Decision Makers is a Web guide for federal site managers, site contractors, and procurement specialists to help them navigate the process towards a successful solar installation by providing step-by-step information, case studies, and additional resources. Because solar systems produce energy on site, they involve unique issues and processes. They include connecting the solar system to both an electrical system and building, understanding procurement options, and finding the most cost-effective solutions. This guide concentrates on distributed solar generation and does not consider large, centralized solar energy generation.
