Calculations
For the best experience in using The Solar App it is highly recommended that some basic information be at hand. There are 2 major categories with a number of user entries to be made.

The owned equipment category will need user entries for the age of the system, what was paid for the equipment, what was paid for installation and the size of the system.

The leased equipment category will need user entries for the age of the system, term of lease contract, what 'up front' contract and/or installation fees were paid and the size of the system.

All other additional information for best results can be found by link next to the required entry fields and/or from direct system observation.
Non solar properties offered for sale in the open market typically have had a comparable market analysis performed at some point to determine 'fair market value'. These numbers are usually supplied by real estate professionals for either their buying or selling clients. A result from The Solar App calculation should be added to (or in many cases subtracted from) FMV for a better idea of the accuracy of the offering or asking price when solar equipment is part of the property. Click here for a sample.

If both properties are solar equiped, do 2 calculations to evaluate one against the other (in comparison) as age, depreciation, location, array direction and output all affect the numbers. Click here for sample 1 and sample 2.

For the non-professional these same figures can be used in conjunction with various value mapping software tools found on many of today's consumer real estate websites to determine a more realistic view of pricing.
Printing can be initiated from the Print Button or from a typical browser menu. Regardless of choice, a paper copy or PDF file can be save for reference or presentation. To print all the graphics as seen on the live page, select the layout as portrait, paper size as letter, margins as none and display background graphics.

A 'minimalist' view is available by deselecting the background graphics option.
