Seamless planning of your solar photovoltaic projects

Design your PV plant using only your site definition. pvDesign provides available sources regarding topography, meteorology, horizon profile, and even surface albedo. Nevertheless, you will also have the option to upload your own data.

Easily pinpoint your site

Upload your site in a kml/kmz format. Define the available areas (where you want pvDesign to install structures), the restricted areas (where you do not want to install structures within your available areas), your substation area, your main and secondary access points to each Available Area, and the MV cables delivery point in your substation using Google Earth.

Define your topography data

Select the topography available in pvDesign (Google Earth) or upload your own in a csv file with the elevation data.

Select your meteorological data

Choose the meteorological source you want to use for your energy production estimations from our catalog (PVGIS 5, NASA Power or NASA SSE) or upload your own—pvDesign accepts SolarGIS, Meteonorm, Solaranywhere, and NREL TMYs files as well as any other file following pvDesign formatting.

Select surface albedo

As a last step, you will need to select the surface albedo. We provide a satellite albedo source (NASA MODIS), standard values (grass, sand, snow) or create your own albedo data with monthly values.
