Before investing money in a particular photovoltaic system, individuals as well as professionals need to know the best location to install their system, and their annual profit. Photovoltaic Profit Estimator is the only app, currently available, which not only estimates annual income from a photovoltaic system but also compares photovoltaic profit between two distinct locations within the same area (e.g. between the roof and the ground), across different areas or across different countries. It currently covers any location within the North America, Europe and Middle East. In this way the user is presented with the best option to invest his money. The application uses iPhoneâ€™s integrated sensors gyroscope, accelerometer and the GPS to determine the optimal location for the photovoltaic system. Once the location has been specified, it derives data on solar radiation and the AC energy that the photovoltaic system can produce from the USA National Renewable Energy Laboratory or from the European Photovoltaic GIS. Using this data through a mathematical model Photovoltaic Profit Estimator provides you with a concrete estimation of the annual profit of your installed photovoltaic system. Using an intuitive interface, the app is able to present you: - The optimal angle and orientation for your photovoltaic system. - The average radiation on a monthly basis. - The average electricity production on a monthly basis. - The total electricity production of the photovoltaic system. - The annual profit. To clearly illustrate userâ€™s profit, Photovoltaic Profit Estimator has the following features: - It uses bar charts to graphically represent the average radiation, electricity, production and profit per month. A captured image of the graph can be send with in app email, Twitter or Facebook messages. - It compares the systemâ€™s performance in two distinct locations graphically. - It enables the user to select the radiation data source, that is data deriving either from calculations based on satellite data, or from calculations based on ground measurements. - It enables the user to select among different PV technologies, that is among Crystalline Silicon Cells, Thin Film Modules made from CIS or CIGS and Unknown/Other if the type of modules is not known. NOTE: The last two features are enabled only for locations within Europe and Middle East.
