How can that be a thing? With PV Sol software, Naked Solar can show you in detail how different systems will perform either on your roof or on a ground-mounted system.
So you’ve had some quotes, lots of conflicting information and you’re not sure what to expect from your Solar PV? Naked Solar use PV Sol for every quote they produce demonstrating energy generated, bill savings and system payback. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting and can make an informed choice about which system to go for.
3D Solar PV modelling
First things first, make a model of your situation, including trees and buildings that may cause shading (you can even let it know if the trees are coniferous or deciduous so that the difference in the winter is accurate). By using your local weather data file, PV Sol will also know your position on Planet Earth and the sunpath for your location.
What about my electric consumption?
PV Sol has numerous pre-programmed electrical consumption profiles which can be tailored to you. Work from home using a PC all day? We can take account of that. Planning on installing a heat-pump? We can add that, too. Charging your EV? Let’s add that too. Using a dual tariff? No problem for PV Sol.
So what about the different panels & inverters?
There are over 400 solar panel manufacturers across the world with more than 50 active in the UK at any one time. Along with over 100 Solar PV inverter manufacturers, that makes for endless combinations. It can be a ‘confusion of choice’. Luckily PV Sol has got that covered too with a huge database that is updated almost weekly. Knowing the performance characteristics of all those panels and inverters means PV Sol can accurately calculate how well different systems will perform on your roof, in your exact location.
So how do I choose which system to have?
The PV Sol reports are packed with information and Naked Solar will ensure you know how to find what you’re looking for in the reports so you can compare different systems and know what to expect from your choices.
I’ve already got solar, what about extending it?
You’ve probably guessed by now – it’s no problem. PV Sol keeps older products available in its database so we can model your existing system, find panels that will fit on the remaining space and let you see how much difference they’ll make to your bills.
What about battery storage for my solar?
With so many new battery manufacturers hitting the market it can be hard to choose. Well of course PV Sol can help, as there’s a growing database of battery storage systems for Solar PV built in to PV Sol, too. So whether you’re adding a battery to your existing system or want to buy a complete battery and solar system, we can let you try before you buy.
