More about PVMapper Site Designer

PVMapper Site Designer is the desktop extension of the PVMapper online application. It is a free tool for designing and analyzing a specific site and evaluating the amount of power that can be produced from that site. It can be used for designing large scale photovoltaic (PV) systems based on numerous factors to reflect the characteristics of landscape specific to the area including site location, time zone, sun path, nearby weather station data, tilt and azimuth angle of the solar panels, and nearby objects such as trees and buildings that may obstruct or cast shadows over the panels.
