Overview

What is Helioscope?
Helioscope is a software by Folsom Labs that includes all the features of PVSyst and adds the basic design functionality of AutoCAD and SketchUp, allowing solar designers to do a complete design with one package.
 
Helioscope offers the best of both worlds where you can use a single software to carry out both energy estimations and create beautiful 3D model designs. By combining streamlined layout tools with bankable energy simulations, HelioScope helps solar designers improve their design speeds by 5x-10x. It is a web-based tool and you can use it from any computer.
 
Helioscope’s features include 3D design, rapid proposals, bankable simulations, single line diagrams, automatic CAD export, up to 5MW systems, component library, global weather coverage, PAN file support, shade reports, and more.
