Ladybug Photovoltaics components released

The plugin Ladybug Grasshopper Environmental just released a new set of free components for analysis of PhotovoltaicsThey are based on the PVWatts v1 online calculator, supporting crystalline silicon fixed-tilt photovoltaics.

These components help you answer the question: "How much energy can my roof, building facade, solar parking... generate if I populate them with PV panels?"

They allow definition of different types of losses (snow, age, shading...) that may affect your PV system. Or find its optimal tilt and orientation. Or analyze its performance, energy value, consumption, emissions...
