Bankability report

Black & Veatch reviews pvDesign and compares it to PVsyst©

AUG 04, 21 | 2 AM

Is your energy yield bankable? The folks at the RatedPower sales team have listened to this question a trillion times. After more than 10,000 solar project simulations in pvDesign, we turned to Black & Veatch, a top-tier engineering consulting firm to compare pvDesign’s energy output calculations for four modeled cases to those of desktop software PVsyst© side by side.

At RatedPower, it is our goal to become bankable. This third-party independent review provides you a conceptual level benchmark analysis of pvDesign and PVsyst© for four separate design/technology cases as well as a detailed review of pvDesign’s algorithms for solar position angle, and the irradiance received on the back face of a bifacial module.
