Solar Sizing PBL Project

In this project-based learning unit, students explore the basics of electricity and the different types of currents, then moves into looking at work sites and what is required to add solar to a residential home. In the third lesson, students use their electric bill to calculate how much electricity is used in their household and how this translates into solar panels for their home. The unit culminates by students creating a blueprint on SketchUp using the information collected and then students will present their photovoltaic system to their classmates. This project is brought to you by Laura Gallardo with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team.
