Solar Panel Configurator

January 3, 2012

Figuring out how many solar panels would fit on your roof and how much yield they would generate used to be a time-consuming task. Autarco wanted to simplify this proces by developing a web-based design tool. The goal was to let dealers and customers easily design by simply drawing your roof on a satellite map and let the tool calculate how many panels would fit on your roof and how much power it would generate.

I've delivered a working solution using React, Typescript, Turf.js and many other libraries

During this project there were several technical challenges, but not limited to:

  • Implementing draw functions on a map provider
  • Optimizing geospatial calculations to efficiently provide results in a browser
  • Integrate complex geospatial algorithms in cooperation with physics experts
