The first independent tool to compare solar panels!
Is your roof suitable for the installation of solar panels? What is the optimal setup and which type of solar panel suits best at your roof? The App Solar Consult can give you the answers directly.
The orientation meter works like a compass that will display the deviation from the South (or North). You can put the phone on the roof or hold it against the ceiling. In addition, the inclination of the roof will be measured.
If you are considering installing solar panels, the tab ‘Map’ can help you in your research whether your roof is suitable for solar panels. The tab ‘Map’ shows whether there falls enough sunlight on your roof and whether it is worth to install solar panels. You can enter an address or display your current location.
You can enter the details of your roof and the App will calculate for your roof with multiple types of solar panels the maximum output in the tab ‘Advice’.
Also, the required surface of solar panels on pitched and flat roofs are displayed. The tab ‘Roof’ displays the length of the shadow behind a row of solar panels.
Roadmap to get an advice from the App Solar Consult:
Step 1 : Hold the iPhone/iPad against the roof to determine the efficiency of solar panels depending of the angle and orientation.
Step 2 : Check the map with the top view of the location and determine the solar irradiation in your region. On a country map, you can see the solar irradiation of your country. You can also enter a different address or country.
Step 3 : After entering the size of the roof, with the 3rd tab can give you an advice with the maximum number of solar panels that can be installed. You can select a different type of solar panel.
Step 4 : In addition to the advice of the app, the user can customize the system (4th tab). In case of a skylight or chimney, the user can differ from the advice.
Step 5 : Choose upper right on [Mail/Save] and enter your details. You can mail the project to your own address or to a supplier for a quote. To save projects, you need to install the PRO version.
