The Energy Matters Solar Analyser is a revolutionary solar power site evaluation tool for the iPhone 3G, 3Gs and iPod Touch, providing full solar site analysis - and it's free! While originally designed for solar industry professionals, it's simple enough to operate that just about anyone can use it. Step-by-step instructions including screenshots are provided here.
By utilizing the compass (on iPhone 3GS) and inclinometer functions of the iPhone, together with built in GPS and sun positioning functionality, the Solar Analyser can perform site evaluations in seconds. The Solar Analyser is easy to use, requiring minimal set-up time - you simply trace the skyline with the “heads up sight” and press “Analyse”.
Using the Solar Analyser's high resolution graphical display and easy to review results, you can determine a realistic estimation of the kWhr solar power that can be generated at a location, taking into account the local shading. It also supports fixed, single and dual axis tracking systems.
The Solar Analyser includes a large database of solar panel and inverter models. Select your dream system configuration and the tool will also calculate the $/month production of the site (Australia only).
After having generated a report and determined optimal configurations, you can send the generated PDF report to any email address. You can also then use the Energy Matters instant online solar quoting tool for an obligation free cost estimate, including rebates!
