Solabacus is a simple calculator for the iPhone and iPod Touch that graphically demonstrates how much clean energy you can generate using photovoltaic panels in a given location. The calculation is based on a database of solar radiation from over 1,400 weather stations distributed throughout the United States.

The amount of energy created by a photovoltaic array depends on many factors, such as the latitude, the angle of the array towards the sky (the tilt), the horizontal direction the array is facing (the azimuth), and the ambient temperature. Shade and albedo (locally reflected radiation), which are unique to each site, are additional considerations that need to be factored into the final calculation. The Solabacus application, therefore, should not be considered a substitute for a professional assessment, but it will provide a good indication of how much photovoltaic energy you can expect from a given location.

The Solabacus database of solar radiation is based on the National Solar Radiation Database TMY3 data set, which is the result of the hourly capture of meteorological data throughout the US over a 14-year period.

Solabacus also includes a small representative database of currently available photovoltaic modules as well as a summary of their electrical and physical specifications.
