pvDesign intuitive and collaborative tool allows users to generate and explore a multitude of photovoltaic power plant proposals and unravel the best ones, providing detailed analysis for each of them. pvDesign strive to make photovoltaics accessible to everyone in minutes, not weeks, by merging technology and engineering into a user-friendly software.

RatedPower offers pvDesign, a cloud-based global SaaS that optimizes and shortens the design and engineering process of utility-scale PV plants from an average time of 4-6 weeks to seconds. The customers use pvDesign by simply uploading the project’s location, selecting the main equipment and criteria (topography, civil, electrical, meteorological, etc.) and download all the engineering documentation required for a given project. pvDesign, by using heuristic functions, finds the smartest site configuration in terms of cost and efficiency, often not so obvious for an engineer, enabling comparisons to secure the selection of the optimum one. They are able to better manage their resources, better understand the whole project environment and getting more accurate and optimized results. By using pvDesign clients saw a decrease of 5% in the LCOE of their plants, which translates to a 20% higher solar plant profitability.
