Solar Design Software - How Solar Energy Systems Are Created and Designed
If you want a better understanding of how solar energy works, you need to learn the basics of using solar design and proposal software. Read on to learn more about how to get started designing and creating solar systems.
What is Solar Design and Proposal Software?
Solar design and proposal software lets you determine how much electricity will be generated from the solar panels to be installed on your property, based on your utility usage and other unique factors.
At Credible Solar, we use Everbright for creating solar energy proposals.
How Does Credible Solar Generate Proposals?
Our solar design software takes information unique to each property such as:
- Electricity use on the property
- Roof angels (azimuth)
- Roof space
- Roof tilt
- Roof shading
- Climate around property
- Property Location
with information from the solar equipment that'll be installed on the property such as:
- Solar Panel Type / Brand
- Solar Inverter Type / Brand
- Battery Storage (Optional)
- Generator (Optional)
to estimate how much electricity will produced from the solar panel systems if installed. The solar design software also compares the old electricity bill to the new solar bill + utility bill side-by-side for easy comparison. Credible Solar will generate a same-day solar proposal for a property if submitted before 4pm on a weekday.
What Can Else Can Solar Proposal Software Do?
The solar federal tax credit, utility company rebates, upgrades, energy back-up, energy efficiency, and other adders associated with the installation can be factored into the software. The solar proposal software is capable of showing the for a cash, leased, and financed solar energy system.
How To Get Started With Solar Proposal Software?
The cost of using solar design and proposal software varies based on the software you choose. If you need to customize solar energy proposals, we recommend using Everbright solar proposal software that allows the creation of unlimited proposals, starting at around $300 a month. If you don’t need much customization and don’t make many proposals a month- try solo solar proposal software for about $20 a proposal.
