|| Handbook for Rooftop Solar Development in Asia

|| With the cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems decreasing, alongside rising fossil fuel and electricity prices, implementing a rooftop solar PV system is becoming an attractive option, even in heavily urbanized areas. The Asian Development Bank has predicted increased energy demand in Asia’s future, and rooftop solar PV is one option, among many alternative energy solutions, that can meet that demand in a sustainable manner.
As a point of reference, this handbook provides examples from ADB’s experience in implementing its own rooftop solar PV system, which was completed in 2012. Though this handbook was written to be accessible to all audiences, experienced developers may find ADB’s experience helpful. The handbook answers questions that people encounter along the way, including issues dealing with design considerations before installing a PV system, the permits required, available incentives and financing options, procurement, installation considerations including safety issues, and operation and maintenance of the system.
