Does EnergyPro accept renewables such as Solar Photovoltaics (PV)?

Inputs for PV are handled at the Top level of the Building Tree, in the PV+Batt tab.

In New Construction Homes, Title 24 recognizes (and generally requires in order to comply) your inputs for PV, however in no case does the credit get recognized in additions and alterations.  You have several options on how the PV is sized for Single Family.  One approach is the Specify your PV Size.  When using this option, you will input the specifics of your PV in the table at the bottom.  Another option is to select a Standard Size PV system.  Using this option, EnergyPro will size your PV system pretty close to what is used in the Budget.  Maximum the PV size is another option, EnergyPro will size the PV system as large as possible.

Note that several Title 24 based exceptions are available related to PV in this tab.  Please see the Energy Code for more info.

In Nonresidential occupancies, Title 24 does not allow you self size the PV system so you will need to input the System specifics.
