Fronius sent word that its new Solar.creator was now available to assist in PV design layouts. Many of the Solar.creator functions do more than just support the planning of PV systems. From site selection to the finished report, the free tool covers every aspect of online configuration.
“Fronius Solar.creator was developed to support our customers in the planning, layout, and design of photovoltaic systems,” explains Adrian Noronho, Director of the Business Unit Solar Energy at Fronius USA. “We recommend using the reports for consultations or during sales discussions with the end customer. This makes it easy to illustrate the different aspects of cost effectiveness, energy flows, and components. The predefined load profiles in the tool help you to select the right consumer profile and provide a detailed estimation of the expected consumption.”
The efficient connection to various databases (module databases, weather database, integration of Google Maps) generates the best possible result. “By connecting to a weather database, the user receives the insolation data for the selected location,” explains John Toma, Product Solutions at Fronius USA.
Users can simply log in and out with their existing Solar.web account. In addition, an unlimited number of projects can be planned all under the same user account. The results can be prepared individually and clearly, which helps to support the final sale. The clear display provides step by step guidance through the planning process.
“The free Solar.creator is flexible, user-friendly, and allows for the fully comprehensive design and simulation of PV systems with electrical loads. A tool that provides maximum support for both planners and sellers,” Toma says.
