A simple mobile app for estimating the monthly and annual energy production of a solar photovoltaic system.

The Solar PV Calculator is intuitive and easy to use. With only 5 required inputs and a graphical representation of your system, an hourly solar simulation is only seconds away. Data service is not required, so you can get an estimate even in the most remote location.

The calculation engine is an hourly simulation of your system based on TMY3 solar radiation data from the National Renewable Energy Lab. This tool features an isotropic sky model built for conservative estimates and calculation speed. Temperature related degradation throughout the year as well as glazing effects are also included in the simulation.

Results are presented as monthly and annual energy totals, which can be useful in assessing performance while on site.

    Great idea
    Great idea, but it doesn't have any of the cities I work in. Would be nice to have dome way to get the info off the phone as well.
