DUNMORE Corp. has developed a smart phone app for iPhone and Android that enables solar installers to position modules to catch the maximum amount of sunlight and produce the maximum amount of electricity.
The DUNMORE SunFinder app works by simply positioning the smart phone as a module and tilting it to find the optimal angle, the company says. In an easy-to-read graphical format, SunFinder displays the estimated amount of sunlight that strikes the site in a year and how much electricity it will produce.
‘It's the solar module equivalent of a stud finder,’ says DUNMORE's Michael Sullivan. ‘It gives solar module installers a fast, accurate and easy way to determine if their module is in the optimal position for electricity production.’
