If a solar company can't do this kind of modelling, go elsewhere
At Sweet Spot Solar we pride ourselves on having access to the most advanced and accurate software and modelling tools to design your solar array. This lets us try out several different module and inverter configurations to make sure that you are getting the best array possible for your location and budget. We can also see exactly the impact of trees and other shading issues.
Here’s an example of a newly modelled roof for a client in Salmon Arm. The colourful “blooms” represent trees.
These licenses cost us more than $3000/year but they are worth it. Would you go to an architect who draws a house on napkins with a pencil? Why risk your investment in solar energy with anything less than the professional services we can provide?
