What is AutoCAD?

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 broad.

AutoCAD for solar system design is a sought-after skill by companies around the globe. This online solar energy training program covers every basic and intermediate function that a solar PV designer would need to know to draw professional-grade client-ready solar PV system designs and layouts. 

AutoCAD for solar designers helps you create comprehensive project designs for ground-mounted, rooftop, carport and sloped roof solar projects. It also provides energy production modelling, automatic module layout, wire sizing and stringing, and electric 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.
