What does Solar Pro do?
Solar Pro is used to create 3D models of residential, commercial flat-roof, ground-mounted, and single & dual-axis tracker PV systems. The shading effects of each object created in Solar Pro, including trees, buildings, and adjacent PV arrays, can be easily visualized on a minute-by-minute basis, 365 days of the year. Solar Pro predicts hourly electricity generation using scientific, industry-standard mathematical models. IV Curve calculations are performed at the module level and take into account irradiation & temperature data, shading, and other detailed loss factors.
