JEDI Photovoltaics Model

The Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (JEDI) Solar Photovoltaics (PV) Model allows users to estimate the statewide economic impacts associated with developing solar projects for distributed generation capabilities.

The model includes default information that can be used to run a generic impact analysis assuming industry averages. The economic impacts identified include annual jobs, earnings, output, and value added for the installation period as well as once the systems are up and running. The data spreadsheet can be downloaded below and includes a user FAQ and start guide. Model users are encouraged to enter as much project-specific data as possible.
