PVComplete, a solar design software provider, announced that it has selected by REC Solar as their PV project design platform. REC Solar, a national provider of commercial solar and energy solutions based in San Luis Obispo, Calif., serves customers nationwide in the retail, manufacturing, agriculture, technology, government and nonprofit sectors. REC has chosen to work with PVComplete to further accelerate project design while also improving engineering.
“REC Solar is focused on delivering reliable solar solutions that will stand the test of time,” said Brian Meichtry, Senior Engineering Manager at REC Solar. “To increase design productivity and accuracy, we’ve chosen PVComplete as our design platform software. Their platform enables us to design quality, state of the art solar systems in 1/3 the time. This translates to into significant savings for our customers.”
With PVComplete, project designers can go beyond designing systems to code – making sophisticated design choices that increase energy output and lower project costs. Each design choice can be quantified through the energy production model available with one click. Project costs can be estimated with greater accuracy through the generation of an automatic bill of materials with detailed information on modules, inverters, attachments and cabling – down to the inch.
“We’re delighted that REC Solar, a highly-regarded renewable energy leader, has selected PVComplete for project design and engineering,” said Claudia Eyzaguirre, CEO and co-founder of PVComplete. “Using this platform, solar project designers –for the first time– can get energy production modeling directly from their CAD drawings. The side-by-side comparison afforded by PVComplete’s platform allows for the best PV project design choices.”
PVComplete performs all the electrical calculations necessary for solar project design, reducing the need for cumbersome spreadsheets and scrap paper calculations. The company’s automated wire stringing does in 60 seconds what otherwise takes an afternoon.
