Layouts will be generated based on the mid-clamp widths of the selected racking system.
SolarDesignTool has a large curated database of DC and AC Modules.
SolarDesignTool supports Multi-MPPT String inverters, Inverters with optimizers, and microinverters.
Our electrical configuration selection tool helps you select a string or branch configuration that is compatible for the module and inverter.
You can fine tune each layout by changing the setbacks, racking product, or layout strategy
SolarDesignTool currently supports gridded portrait and landscape layouts. Very soon we will be added several more layout strategies
Sales Designs—while fast to create—are solid designs that result in
less post-sale re-designing
At the sales design stage, you can generate a lot of documents to show your customer how much went into their design
If you sell the system, adding the BOS components and sizing the conductors, conduit, and OCPDs, is a quick
We guide you through the process of selecting combiners and disconnects by showing you the components that are the correct size for your system
SolarDesignTool supports multiple interconnection strategies
We make the difficult task of determining the environmental parameters needed to properly size conductors easy.
Default settings allow you to breeze through the process of sizing conductors, but if you need to fine-grain control, you can edit terminal temperature ratings and maximum wire temperature
You provide the lengths and we'll make sure the wire is sized to meet your voltage drop targets
Updating your installation area dimensions post-sale is also easy
Our shape similarity algorithm matches the shapes you original traced to ones in the imported roof report. When you accept the matches and click submit, the layouts are automatically updated if needed
After creating your
you can generate documents for permitting
