# how to build a photovoltaic system in energyplus

I'm trying to put a pv system to the facade, and get the produced electricity, I wrote the IDF as following, but I can not find the variable outputs in the cvs file. What is the right process for this?

@Yi I can't see the whole file. Maybe it's just me,but when I click (more) at the bottom, nothing happens. Can you post a link to the file instead?
