PV plant prospecting at the speed of light

Does it frustrate you—or your manager—that your time is terribly wasted on manually optimizing PV plants designs and calculating energy yields? How many apps do you use for gathering PV plant project's documents to apply for permits? How many engineering hours do you need to prospect a site?

Craft is for pottery

Lack of highly specialised software leads your engineering team to work across a variety of non-integrated apps. Such as CAD software and its plethora of not-so-updated plugins, legacy software or your favourite spreadsheet app.

Imagine your engineering team scouting plots of land at 2X higher velocity. There is a better way to keep LCOE low by maximizing energy production in your designs. There is a better way to grow your project pipeline through software.



Start with a land file and get a comprehensive engineering docs pack without jumping up and down between apps. From layout or electrical reports to energy yield and LCOE. Ready to your off-taker.
Substation engineering

Substation engineering

Automatically design the basic engineering of the step-up substation of your PV plant. Get a complete SLD and a fully detailed report based on your inputs.


Empower your engineering teams to carry out feasibility analysis and plant designs. Avoid outsourcing these tasks and save money.
Sharing is caring

Sharing is caring

Stop emailing project files with colleagues and mess it up with document versions. Access, clone, iterate, and compare site projects across the entire organization. All plans include unlimited seats.

Lightning fast layout

Get a new design from scratch in minutes —including required earthworks. Or clone an existing one and compare them in a matter of three clics.

  • pvDesign calculates the volume of earthworks required to install a structure

  • It works along with the topography analysis to achieve better compliance with the terrain.

  • Get accurate energy yielding and cost estimates.

All your location data in a tab

Use our built-in topography, meteorological, horizon and albedo profile data streams to enhance your designs. Upload your own for a much more tailored simulation.

  • Google Earth for topography

  • NASA SSE for meteorological data

  • PVGIS 5 for horizon and meteo

  • MODIS for albedo profiling

Long-range energy yield

Get up to 50 years of energy yield of your plant design using your meteorological, horizon and albedo data. Or use our out-of-the-box data sources.

  • PVGIS 5, NASA Power and SSE sources included.

  • Input PV module and PV plant losses and understand how it impact energy yield.

  • Choose your preferred IAM loss model for PV modules.

The first paperwork you'll love

Download a whole pack of engineering documentation for your project. Including BoQ, design drawings, list of cables or electrical diagrams. Ready to cast to your off-taker or EPCist.

  • Design, energy yield and interconnection facility reports.

  • Project sheet, bill of quantities, listing of cables in spreadsheet format.

  • SLDs and 3D facility layout ready to import to PVsyst or your CAD software.
