Simplifying utility-scale energy modeling

PVComplete's PVSyst integration upgrade to PVCAD Mega, the first CAD software for utility-scale PV projects, built on Autodesk technology. PVCAD Mega users can now create a singular, accurate, and nuanced layout in PVCAD Mega to inform both construction and PVSyst modeling. The utility scale layout + PVSyst export makes it easy to produce 3D shade scenes for even the largest utility scale projects in minutes. Once a project layout has been designed in PVCAD Mega, users are able to press a simple "Export to PVSyst" button to produce a PVSyst-compatible folder of information that includes: meteo, projects, and shading. Importing the PVCAD Mega-generated files into PVSyst eliminates cumbersome data input and shade scene construction making it easy for designers to get high accuracy yield estimates for their projects. PVCAD Mega is available with or without bundled AutoCAD software on a monthly or annual subscription basis.
