The Panel dropdown in the Nearmap solar tool contains a list of PV units produced by popular solar panel manufacturers.
If you can't find the PV unit you want to use in your solar installation, you can add it to the list by creating a custom panel.
To create a custom panel:
- From the Toolbar, select Design.
- Select Solar.
- Click the Panels tab.
- From the Panel dropdown, select an existing panel.
- Click Make a copy.
- Enter the manufacturer, model number and parameters of the solar panel from its specifications sheet.
The details are automatically saved in the new panel. You can now select the new panel from the Custom Panels section of the Panel dropdown when creating a solar job.
