Systems Advisor Model (SAM) makes performance predictions and cost of energy estimates for grid-connected power projects based on installation and operating costs and system design parameters that you specify as inputs to the model. Projects can be on the customer side of the utility meter – buying  and selling electricity at retail rates – or on the utility side of the meter, selling electricity at a price negotiated through a power purchase agreement.
