In the list of solar panels you can select a panel. You can read the characteristics of the panel and in the standard version of the app, you can also enter a custom panel.

On a pitched roof the panels will be mounted flat on the roof. On a flat roof the panels will be placed in an angle with standards. The value that a flat roof will define (and therefore the use of standards shall require) differs by region and can be changed.

The minimum inclination of a panel on a flat roof is different by region. Usually the manufacturer will give only under certain conditions the warranty. A condition may be that the inclination must be at least 10°. The reason is that at a smaller angle the rainwater will stay on the panel, leaves and debris will not rinse off and moss can grow on the panel.

On a flat roof, it is desirable that the rows of solar panels are not in each other's shadow throughout the year. So the sun angle in the winter is of importance in the calculation of the distance between rows of solar panels because the sun is then at its lowest. The App calculates and displays a setup by placing the rows so that they are not in each other's shadow throughout the year.

To add your company data and solar panels in the App, you can tap on 'Personalize to your own App' and you need to install the PRO-Version.
