Therefore, in this article, we’ll answer the top 10 questions frequently asked by visitors at the Intersolar 2024 PVcase booth. Continue reading to discover the responses you’re looking for!

1. What is PVcase Prospect?

PVcase Prospect is a site selection and GIS platform. It integrates advanced GIS technology, automates site analysis, and offers comprehensive data sets to help users find optimal locations for renewable energy projects. Specifically, PVcase Prospect comes pre-loaded with essential datasets for renewable energy siting, allowing solar developers and investors to conduct detailed site analyses and injection studies effortlessly.

2. Where is PVcase Prospect available?

PVcase Prospect (formerly AO Prospect) is available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, and Germany. Our team is actively working on expanding to Italy, and we aim to achieve global availability soon.

Is your country not on the list? No problem! Contact us, and we’ll find the best solution for your needs.

3. How does PVcase Prospect integrate with other tools?

PVcase Prospect easily integrates with PVcase Ground Mount, allowing you to transfer project data, optimize your design workflow without any substantial effort, and, most importantly — avoid data risk. If you integrate PVcase Prospect with Ground Mount, we recommend using PVcase Yield for the final yield estimation.

4. What data sources does PVcase Prospect use for site analysis?

The data sources PVcase Prospect uses for site analysis vary depending on the country in which you work. We aim to integrate each region’s most suitable and relevant data sources. Here’s what we offer:

  • Localized data: we incorporate data from reputable local sources specific to that region within each country.
  • Transparency: we can provide more details about the data sources used in your location upon request through the corresponding access link.

For the most accurate assessment of your project needs, connect with one of our PVcase Prospect specialists to get information about the relevant data sources to your country. It will ensure that PVcase’s capabilities meet your site analysis requirements.

5. How to become a part of the PVcase team?

You can become a part of the PVcase team by checking out our Career page, where you’ll find a list of open positions. We’re constantly looking for skilled professionals worldwide to join our international team, so don’t miss out on an excellent opportunity to become one of the PVcasers and work for a meaningful purpose.

6. How does PVcase Roof Mount account for roof obstructions?

PVcase Roof Mount accounts for roof obstructions by offering features, such as 3D Modeling and Shading Analysis, that can handle various roof types, including flat roofs, sloped roofs, and inclined roofs

The 3D Modeling capabilities allow you to import and visualize roof features like chimneys, vents, or skylights, including offset zones around them. This enables precise shading analysis and optimal panel placement that avoids obstructions.

Meanwhile, Shading Analysis calculates the impact of shading from obstructions on energy production. This helps ensure your design maximizes sunlight capture for optimal solar output.

Recently, we hosted a webinar, “How to improve Roof Mount design with detailed Shading Analysis”. Watch the webinar and discover how to improve your design decisions with real-time insights on annual shading loss and in-plane irradiation, all made possible through Shading Analysis.

7. How to get a free PVcase trial? 

To get a free PVcase trial, follow these three easy steps:

  1. Schedule a meeting with one of our PVcase experts.
  2. Determine which stages of your project PVcase can help with.
  3. Enjoy your free PVcase trial, activated after the meeting!

PVcase free trial is your first step to becoming proficient in the software and getting hands-on experience generating more PV projects in less time, with fewer human resources.

8. Can PVcase Roof Mount develop residential and smaller-scale projects?

No, PVcase Roof Mount can’t develop residential projects, but you can use it for smaller-scale C&I projects.

The PVcase Roof Mount software is specifically designed for commercial and industrial projects. It boasts a fleet of features that impact larger rooftop solar projects, ranging from 50 kW to over 100 kW.

On the other hand, the PVcase Ground Mount is suitable for projects exceeding 1 MW. Listen to our customer stories for more information about projects using PVcase products.

9. In what languages can you get a PVcase demo?

You can get a PVcase demo in English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Hindi, and Portuguese.

10. What are the benefits of using PVcase Ground Mount over traditional methods?

PVcase Ground Mount is better than traditional methods because it offers many features, such as Layout Generation, integration with Prospect for quick site selection, Yield for project estimation, and much more. These tools enable faster and more accurate development of utility-scale projects. Here’s why you should choose PVcase Ground Mount over traditional methods:

  1. Risk reduction: accurate designs minimize the risk of errors that could lead to on-site adjustments or redesigning.
  2. Cost optimization: fewer errors and smooth installation can reduce overall project costs.
  3. Maximal performance: precise panel placement ensures maximum energy production from your solar project.
  4. Fast project completion: the software boasts millimeter-level accuracy, minimizing design errors and leading to a smoother installation process.

Also, PVcase Ground Mount offers an intuitive interface, making it easy for both new and experienced users to use.
