Congrats for getting a start on creating your own Rooftop Solar site, or for testing out our PV performance estimation tool!

If you're wondering:

  • How do I add multiple strings? 
  • I have a split array, how can I add this information?
  • I have more than one direction for my solar panels. 
  • How do I add a Rooftop solar site that has more than one azimuth angle? 

You're in the right place.

The short answer - we don't support multiple azimuth systems directly in the API at this time, nor do we support this in the free PV performance estimation tool.

However, this is not a dead end.  If you have a multiple array PV system, you can do the following:

  • Use the average direction (azimuth) of the array (simple approach)
  • First, complete the first step (using the average direction), then upload PV measurement data to our PV Tuning technologies - they'll learn the rest (do this in the API Toolkit)
  • For the free PV performance estimation tool, model each array separately and add up the resulting energy values.

We hope this helps!
