Renewable Sales has invested in a tool for the Solar Contractor which produces a professional project layout, proposal and payback schedule. With the Renewable Sales revolutionary PV Array Designer called “Q*Sol” (short for “Quick Solar Design Tool”), the installer’s client can see exactly how the panels will look and where they will be placed on the roof. The first step is to use the project address to get a satellite image of the project building. The platform technology then allows the installer to map out the solar array on the roof ideally using the southern or southeastern facing angles. A picture is generated so the installer and the client can see how many panels will be needed and how the home will look from the street.
Ideal for residential and commercial applications, The Q*Sol platform can be found on the Renewable Sales American Choice Solar Panels website: http://www.americanchoicesolar.com. There is no project too big or cumbersome for Q*Sol, it can map the array across the flat roof of a building as well as for panels on a mounting system placed on the ground (while allowing the space needed for the angle of the panels).
Q*Sol uses a patent pending Panel Layout Technology that runs "the most sophisticated layout algorithm in the industry." Instead of the installer trying to determine which panel layout makes the most sense, Q*Sol helps to pick the optimal panel layout. This system not only shows how many and what size panels are needed, but also has a transparency function allowing the installer to make sure there are no obstacles situated below the panels. This program allows an installer to show a prospective buyer how the panels will look in under 3 minutes.
Once the mapping is completed a report is generated detailing all of the paybacks and the incentives that apply to that proposal showing the actual cost of the system once the state rebates and SREC's are applied. The amount of energy generated versus the amount of electrical energy saved is also highlighted.
“The team behind Q*Sol is constantly striving to enhance and improve the platform’s capabilities. Many of the upgrades have been in response to questions and suggestions from the renewable companies who use the site. The incredible technology of Q*Sol has to be seen to really be appreciated.” says Kevin Price, CEO Renewable Sales.
