Hi All,

I'm hoping someone might know of a good solar calculator on the internet I can use. I've got some specific needs and I can't find a calculator that has all the features I'm chasing in one place.

My situation is I have a solar bore with a traditional 1.5kW array facing north. I would like to add some panels pointed to the sides to get some more morning / evening power.

The calculators that I have found so far that let you input the angle and heading of the solar panels just give monthly production estimates. I would like one that gives me the production by hour for a day in a graph.

Maybe PV forcast from the Google store? (for android phone - not sure if there's an apple version)

Thanks, might do the job.

Their insolation values are probably accurate, but wow their windspeed for my area is off by a long shot.
