The usage of Solar Energy has increased recently, due to its advantages, mainly because it is a clean renewable source of energy, which its availability makes it ideal for local production of electric power.
The position of a PV panel affects its power generation. Thus, the panels should be positioned optimally for maximum efficiency.
THIS TOOL uses GPS to determine your location and the time of the day, than calculate the azimuth and the elevation of the sun. Having the sun's position calculated, your smartphone will guide you and show you how to position your panel for optimal solar energy generation.
3 operational modes available:
★ Now - The best position of the panel at the current time.
★ Year - The best position of the panel through the whole year.
★ Custom - You may choose the period for optimal power generation.
For best result, place your smartphone in a vertical position on your solar cell surface. The arrows pointing left and right indicate the pan rotation, while the up and down arrows suggest the tilt rotation. Note that the color of the arrows will change from red to green as you get closer to the desired location. We suggest to make gentle movements while the arrows are green until they disappear. When the light bulb turns on, you're on the spot! Now you can remove your smartphone from the panel, and get the most of your solar panel.

In just three easy steps, you can obtain radiation information for your desired location:
position your tablet/Smartphone as if it was a photovoltaic panel; when it is in the correct position, “print” the parameters and retrieve the data.
If you want to customize the parameters like location, orientation, or incline, you can do this by using the pencil shaped button next to each parameter. Once you have the data, you can share the data with your contacts or open it with other applications on your device.
The data contained in the app comes from either NASA or PVGIS (European Union), depending on your chosen location. PVGIS info is retrieved from this site: http://re.jrc.ec.europa.eu/pvgis/
If the data you requested has a location somewhere in Europe or Africa, then the data will come from PVGIS, and if the coordinates correspond to somewhere else on the planet, the data will come from NASA.

Problem with 2.5.7?
E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can try to help.
There are several factors that affect the performance of a solar panel, and three of them closely influence the position must have:
- Latitude: The farther north, the panels should be in a more upright position, because the sun is lower on the horizon
- Environmental barriers. Trees, buildings, mountains, and even other panels can reduce performance if the board is bad orientada.v
- The period of interest. In many cases (for example, seasonal residences, or panels for hot water) may only want the plate using certain months.
Unfortunately, only the first factor is taken into account by most panel installers, which simply give them a south facing slope equal to the latitude.
Horizon Helioserver Calculator is a free application for Android phones that allows you to correct the position of a panel considering all environmental factors. With Horizon Helioserver Calculator can save 25 euros a year, and prevent the emission of hundreds of kilos of CO2 into the atmosphere. *
* Horizon Helioserver Calculator uses GPS or mobile networks to accurately determine latitude.
* Horizon Helioserver Calculator uses the compass, camera and accelerometer of your phone to accurately calculate the skyline silhouette around your plate
* Calculator Helioserver Horizon offers a form to specify the period of interest for the use of the solar
* Horizon Helioserver Calculator uses the internet connection to connect to a powerful server, using very complex calculations, determine the optimum position of the plate
The technology used in the calculation algorithms is the result of years of research by a team of researchers from the University of Malaga by a research project funded by the Municipal Energy Agency of the City of Malaga. The validity of the calculations has been endorsed internationally Eurocities Awards Innovation Award, and the Intel-HP Itanium Award Innovation Award. The company also won the award Helioserver Spin-Off 2010, University of Málaga
The algorithm takes into account the position of the plate, the weather, the silhouette of the horizon and its influence in the daylight hours, and the period of use, and using numerical methods of integration of equations accurately calculates the optimal position plate.
Energy saving and environmental immeasurable
Studies show, for example, that virtually no plate Malaga city is well oriented. On average, all of them are being wasted 6% of its energy, representing a loss of 25 per year, and an environmental charge of 100Kg of CO2 per plate. Throughout Málaga, this represents a cost of emissions of 10,000 tonnes of CO2!
The environmental benefit of this application is unimaginable.
Since there is no similar application in the world, with only Helioserver Horizon Calculator can take full advantage of its plate on any point of the earth. In Helioserver, we consider it important that this application reaches all corners of the world, so it has been translated into more widespread languages (Spanish, English, French, Arabic, Chinese and Russian) Our hope is that this application save tens of millions of tons of emissions worldwide!
Horizon Helioserver Calculator is also a useful tool in applications where it is necessary to calculate a horizontal profile. The profiles can be stored in text mode or how transparency mask. Stellarium or SkyMap are some applications that require this type of masks.
It’s a fact that many Android phones have an advantage over the iPhone: the battery is user-replaceable, meaning you can carry a spare with you. However, even this won’t do you much good if you’re hiking in the north country away from electricity - although there are solar and battery-powered chargers available for when you’re off the grid.
The first time my Samsung ran out of juice by dinner time I knew I had to look into methods to preserve the battery life. Over the next few days I came up with these useful tips which I hope can also help your device stay afloat a bit longer. These ideas (and screenshots) were based on my Samsung Galaxy S3, but they can also apply to other Android devices or iPhones as well, since many of the concepts are similar.
