Accurate energy production estimates are central to the efficient financing and long-term viability of solar energy projects. With the advent of the Inflation Reduction Act, solar photovoltaic projects now have the option to use Production Tax Credits (PTCs) along with Investment Tax Credits (ITCs) as a method of financing.

This white paper presents DNV’s Addendum to the 2021 EA Validation which compares 12 utility-scale solar projects with the methodology previously used but producing DNV’s pre-construction energy estimates with SolarFarmer instead of PVsyst
