Precise solar engineering, iterate your designs and compare which one is right for each project.
AutoCAD for solar designers who want the highest standard of precision and accuracy. PVCAD delivers unparalleled efficiency so you can finalize designs and quote jobs faster.
Selecting design criteria from PVCAD’s integrated databases not only saves time but reduces the risk of costly errors and omissions. We are constantly growing our database of thousands of different inverters, modules, and racking partners. Users can also add their own equipment using the database button in the PVCAD ribbon. Would you like to have your equipment added to our database? Contact us.
PVCAD uses production modeling powered by PVWATTS created by NREL. Accurate 8760 data gives hour by hour production data over the course of the entire year. We use the most up-to-date weather data available with global coverage provided by Meteonorm. Lastly, modeling in AutoCAD allows for the most precise system measurements available with any drafting software.
