    Online Solar Drafting Services

    In the world of renewable energy, particularly solar energy, the need for expert solar system design is crucial to ensuring efficient and effective installations. Here at SolarPlanSets, we’re a leading provider of solar drafting services, providing comprehensive solar plan sets starting from just $169. Our services are aimed at PV installers, EPC firms, and construction companies, amongst others, who are seeking to outsource their solar drafting needs to seasoned professionals.

    What is Solar Drafting?

    Solar drafting, a vital cog in the wheel of the solar installation process, involves the formulation of detailed, technical system designs for solar installations. The heart of this service lies in the creation of comprehensive plans for installing solar panels. These plans can cover various types of installations, including roof-mounted and ground-mounted systems.

    Furthermore, the solar drafting process encompasses the precise specification of essential components that form a solar power system. Such components include, but are not limited to:

    • Solar Panels: The primary element for harnessing solar energy, panels can be mounted on rooftops or the ground, depending on the space and solar irradiance available.
    • DC Optimizers: These devices help to maximize the energy output from each panel, ensuring optimal performance.
    • String Inverters: A crucial component for converting the DC output of the solar panels into AC power that can be used by appliances or fed back into the grid.
    • Microinverters: An alternative to string inverters, these are installed directly on each solar panel, converting DC to AC at the source and enhancing the system’s overall efficiency.
    • Mounting System: The structure that holds the solar panels in place, a well-designed mounting system ensures the stability and longevity of the installation.

    In sum, solar drafting is the technical blueprint that drives the successful installation and performance of a solar energy system.
