Small-scale photovoltaics means higher unit cost per project as well as it requires more time spent with individual customers. This can be solved by use of new tool to design and prepare quotes: EasySolar app. Cloud technology, in-built measurement tools and friendly solutions inside the software that are dedicated to all solar providers, engineers and other professionals, make it easier to sell solar.
Installer companies need access to a wide variety of tools and have to continuously stay updated with the newest solutions on the market. EasySolar app provides all necessary steps necessary for dimensioning and design: site analysis, components database, irradiation database, shadow simulation tool, financial feasibility together with ROI and ready templates for great project and quote presentation.
Projects can be sketched or projected on maps and New components and pricing can be easily added or edited.
