Course description

The Fronius Solar.creator is a free, flexible, and user-friendly online configuration tool that supports you to comprehensively plan and design PV systems when consulting and providing solutions for your customers. It can be individually adapted to your needs and offers assistance in all planning stages of your projects.

The Fronius Solar.creator offers a wide range of functions that go far beyond the planning of PV systems, considering all steps from choosing the right location to the finished report. Automatic suggestions of other suitable Fronius solutions ensure that you can plan the optimum, fully comprehensive system for your customers.

The results of your configuration can be prepared individually and shared directly with customers, colleagues, or technical advisors.

Even the best photovoltaic systems start to show their age. However, through efficient repowering, you can quickly and easily restore your photovoltaic systems back to full power. Fronius inverters are the ideal replacement for older devices that are no longer operating at full capacity. They are easy to install and significantly increase the yield and service life of photovoltaic systems. With our new, user-friendly repowering tool, you can find out which devices are powering your customers’ existing photovoltaic system to full capacity, allowing you to replace the inverter quickly and easily.

In this training, Fronius Head of Solutions Management Chris Connell shows you how to make these tools work for you and your PV projects.
