"Real-Time 3d Solar Designing Tool"

Comments: Aurora is very impressive in terms of results. We usually submit all of our initial solar quotes using Aurora. It helps us a lot when we stuck up in production estimates or Shade reports. The webinars are very informative. In short, it is a complete package for Solar Designing.
Highly recommended!

Pros: - Shade reports & production estimates are very impressive.
- Provides 3d Model with Lidar options to show the height of the surrounding trees or obstructions.
- Up to date imaginary which makes designing very effective.
- Electrical Line Diagram generation is an add on feature which is very helpful.
- Manual/Auto placement of solar modules saves time and provides different PV layouts as required.
- It includes a wide database of all solar manufacturers.

Cons: - Working continuously on a specific site sometimes consumes too much memory.
- Sometimes it doesn't detect accurate pitch.
- If the account is simultaneously login from two systems, the work is lost due to no autosave option.

"Ultimate Tool for Designing Solar Systems "

Pros: Ultimate tool - Aurora provides an online facility to draw a PV layout without physically analysing the roof measurements , secondly it has a feature named irradiance , which basically identify which panels on PV layout are producing less energy due to any reasons. Thirdly id has a feature named LIDAR which highlight the height of trees or any obstruction to sun light. It provides many other features like setting off-set, obstruction, Panel spacing etc, lastly if provides an option to convert file in AutoCAD File, Overall a quality tool to design and install solar projects.

Cons: The only con i have found is that it requires high system configuration, With low system configuration it performs very slow
