The purpose of this section is to provide faculty and lab developers with several examples of laboratory packages that fit into distinct budget categories:
3.1 Starter laboratory for less than $10,000
3.2 Intermediate laboratory for less than $25,000
3.3 Complete (or sufficient) laboratory for less than $50,000
3.4 Superior and highly flexible laboratory for more than $100,000
(This facility would include a greater variety of PV equipment/tools and would also accommodate a larger number of laboratory experiments and individualized hands-on practice from basic through advanced training.)
3.5 Battery Lab options
Note: The following lab budgets are examples only. Actual prices will depend on regional differences, market availability, inflation, and conditions out-of-our-control. Prices should be checked with local distributors for accuracy.
