Title: Photovoltaic subsystem marketing and distribution model

The purpose of the marketing and distribution model is to estimate the costs of selling and transporting photovoltaic solar energy products from the factory to the factory customer. The model adjusts for inflation and regional differences in marketing and distribution costs. The model consists of three major components: the marketing submodel, the distribution submodel, and the financial submodel. What the model can and cannot do, and what data are required is explained. An example for a power conditioning unit demonstrates the application of the model.
