What is PV Sol
Why Valentin

What is PV*Sol

PV*Sol is a dynamic simulation programme with or without 3D visualisation and detailed shading analysis of photovoltaic systems, optional with storage systems.

With PV Sol*Premium you can design a PV system in 15-30 minutes. Based on the design you can prepare your quote and you can attach the comprehensive PV*SOL report to your quote. The report includes all relevant information for your client incl. a 3D preview how the PV system will look like, information on what will be the annual electricity production, how shadows will influence the performance and much more.

Why Valentin

Valentin SoftwareThe solar design company Valentin Software can look back on over 25 years of successful company history. With its brands PV*SOL®, T*SOL® and GeoT*SOL® for the dynamic simulation, design, yield calculation and financial prognosis of photovoltaic, solar thermal and heatpump systems, Valentin Software has become the worldwide leading provider in innovative planning software for sustainable energy supply. The GREEN team is using Valentin’s PV*SOL Premium for designs and trainings and we looked for a solution to bring the software to South Africa and facilitate local purchase.

Professional PV Software has its value, but GREEN made a bench mark and we identified Valentin Software as the software with the best value for money. You buy the license only once and then you can use it forever. In order to receive updates and latest data, it is recommended to buy the software maintenance package with the license. The maintenance package has to be renewed every 12 months but is available at an affordable rate, only 18% of the license price. Even though you can still use the software unlimited without any updates.

Training PV*Sol Design School

Official Partner PV SolTo familiarise with the software and help with an easy start, the GREEN Solar Academy offers a 1-day training course.

In the training participants learn how to do 3D system sizing with PV*Sol Premium. The training is a combination of demonstration and basic build-up of the programme but the main focus is on hands-on exercises. The training is especially recommended for all who bought the lisence or an upgrade from an older programme version.

Maximum learning effect in just one day through well planned exercises!
