Solar drafting services are part of the solar power value chain, starting from the idea of the customer to the final installation and operation of a solar power system for commercial, residential, and industrial applications. Solar energy is emerging as a popular choice of renewable energy for housing and commercial complexes as it a simple, clean and renewable source of energy. A solar mounting system – either rooftop or ground-mounted – is a standard feature of any solar installation, particularly for photovoltaic (PV) projects.
Simply put, solar panels with photovoltaic power systems convert sunlight directly into electricity. A detailed solar panel layout plan serves as input for the construction and maintenance of large solar arrays. Many solar installation companies have a growing need for CAD-based solar PV drafting services.
CAD, or computer-aided drafting, is the use of computers and software to replace manual cad drafting using drawing boards. Solar CAD drafting includes a wide range of professional disciplines including Electrical, Mechanical, Structural, and Architectural. Installers benefit greatly from the use of CAD because they can approach a project with an idea about how the solar array will be laid out, while also having access to dimensions. A key aspect of computerized drafting is a quick turnaround for measuring the electric power output of a solar project.
Of course, to design an effective solar power system, the direction of the sun is an important consideration. Solar CAD drafting incorporates a powerful tool, 3D shading analysis, which helps installers determine the correct positioning of solar panels.
Solar array layouts, detailed roof diagrams, residential roof mounts, commercial ground mounts, carports, and solar farms are all part of the designs we convert into two and three dimensional CAD drawings.
