The new RBI solar calculator app is available for free download from the App Store. The solar shading app helps users to determine the post to post distance and inter-row spacing in the field using smart phones and tablets. Users can enter the geographical location, tilt-angle and solar module height. This app calculates the post to post distance and inter-row spacing based on the input data.
“RBI Solar respects customer privacy and does not store or share any of the entered data,” said Harman Kaur, Marketing Director. “This app is designed to calculate the inter-row spacing for commercial and utility scale PV projects. Soon this app will be available on Android.”
