Seminar Well Attended; Solar Popular Topic in South Jersey

On October 25, fifty-four appraisers and assessors attended the seminar Valuation Resources for Solar Photovoltaic Systems at the Adelphia Restaurant & Conference Center in Deptford, NJ. This was a 4-hour CE class developed by Elevate Energy and Adomatis Appraisal with support from the U.S. Dept. of Energy. The class was instructed by Lisa Meinczinger, SRA, AI-RRS. She is the owner of Advance Appraiser Service in Indianapolis. She is a certified residential appraiser with 20 years of experience in researching, analyzing and reporting market data for current real estate markets. She has 17 years of experience in reviewing, field reviews and reconciliation work. The class included a review of energy storage batteries for solar PV, a list of resources from solar PV system valuation experts, and an overview of electric rate pricing plans to arrive at an accurate analysis of electric costs. Appraisers learned how they can now differentiate themselves from peers by serving as a source of information on solar. They learned how to accurately appraise an installation to reduce the risk of liability, how to comply with appraisal standards and gain competency before appraising a solar installation. Attendees also learned how to gain access to tools and resources for developing the market value of a solar home. Solar will be the topic of another educational opportunity in South Jersey in the Spring. The Appraisal Institute Valuation of Sustainable Buildings professional development program helps enhance the careers of AI professionals in the “green” valuation arena. The Appraisal Institute Education & Relief Foundation recognizes the importance of sustainable valuation knowledge in today’s changing real estate marketplace and as such has created a grant program to support chapters that desire to offer one or more of AI’s green education programs. The Southern New Jersey chapter applied for a grant, and are happy to report that we are a recipient. This grant will help keep costs down for a course applicable to “green” valuation. We will be holding the class “Residen- tial and Commercial Valuation of Solar” on April 8 & 9, at South Jersey Technology Park (part of Rowan University), Mullica Hill.
