Overview

What is AutoCAD for Solar PV Design?

This online solar energy training program covers every basic and intermediate function that a solar PV designer needs to know to draw professional client-ready solar PV system designs and layouts.

AutoCAD is a computer-aided design (CAD) software that when used in solar PV design, allows solar designers and engineers to create precise 2D and 3D CAD solar panel drawings, plant layouts and blueprints to help in the process of solar installation. As a software, it is extremely feature-loaded and is an in-demand skill by solar companies around the globe.

AutoCAD helps solar designers create comprehensive project designs of ground-mounted, rooftop, carport and sloped roof solar projects. It also provides wire sizing, stringing, and single line diagram generation. Additionally, with AutoCAD, solar designers can easily compare and contrast different array layouts for their various installations and choose from a growing library of mounting systems to implement the optimal solar project.
