Sample Cases

This document provides documentation on how to run NEAT for three sample scenarios in which residential appliances are replaced with more energy efficient and less polluting alternatives.  One of the sample cases demonstrate the use of NEAT to estimate the benefits of installing rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) panels in conjunction with appliance upgrades.  This guide provides a benchmark for users to check that NEAT works properly and produces the right results.
