This simplifies the everyday work of installers and energy suppliers, and significantly increases the implementation rates. Thanks to the easy-to-understand project simulation and offer design, potential customers feel they are in good hands from the very beginning.

This is what our customers say

  • The Solar Expert supports us in quickly submitting offers to our customers. The offers are very clear and contain a lot of information so that we can determine target prices within a very short time. This allows us to have a short response time in our customer service. In addition, the Solar Calculator is very much appreciated by our customers.
  • I now have fewer interfaces in the roof system sales division. Personnel capacities can thus be deployed elsewhere, and time savings of up to 75 percent can be achieved by the time it takes to prepare a quotation, even while on the road at the customer's premises.
    Niko Mack
    actensys GmbH
  • The demand for PV systems is very high and growing. With the software from Eturnity we have already received a lot of contacts and, above all, we have also been able to generate orders. The creation of (indicative) offers is very quick and easy. The customer receives an attractive PDF document via Eturnity.

FAQ about the Solar Expert

What kind of map material can I use?
We offer the following map material for the following countries: Switzerland: Google Maps as well as Swisstopo map material can be used. Germany: Google Maps and orthophotos. Austria: Google Maps and orthophotos from Basemap.
Can I make the house bigger or smaller in the PV module layout on the quotation?
What you can set yourself is the zoom factor of the image. So, if you don’t want the whole image to be bigger, but just want to show the house bigger, you can configure this on the page where you generate the PDF. In addition to the module display, you will also find the “Zoom” setting, where you can choose between “minimum”, “normal”, and “maximum”. Accordingly, the house with the modules is displayed larger or smaller. We can also adjust this for you by default if you do not want to make the change when generating each PDF, so that the zoom is always set to "maximum", for example.
I cannot create a project because the address is not found
Unfortunately, we have no influence on the regularity of Google Maps updates. However, there are some workarounds for missing addresses.

1. Open Google Maps separately. Find the building for which you want to plan an interpretation and right-click on the building. Then click on "What's here?" and add the corresponding address in the Heating Expert.

2. Try entering the address of the building next door or a street next door. You can then switch to the desired building in the map section. The PDF always shows the building for which the modules are marked. You can then easily correct the customer address in the "Customer" tab.
Can I select several PV modules for one installation?
Yes, you can design different roofs with different modules and substructures. Click on "+ New roof orientation" to add further modules or substructures.
Can I deposit the amounts of the annual operating costs?
Yes, you can define the annual operating costs as a percentage of the initial investment costs or as a fixed amount per kWp of the system. These settings can be made under "Profitability". For the battery, the annual operating costs are stored as a fixed amount. Please let us know the desired annual amount if you want to change it.
Can I adjust the electricity price development?
Yes, you can adjust this on a project-specific basis under "Profitability". If you would like to adjust this as standard, we would be happy to do this for you. To do so, send us an e-mail with the desired values.
What is the internal rate of return (IRR)?
The internal rate of return (IRR) shows you the interest rate at which your clients' investment in the project theoretically earns interest. In business administration, this is often a value used to assess or compare the attractiveness of projects. The IRR is then put into the context of current interest rates of other investments, e.g. on a savings account. If you get a negative IRR, it would mean that the investment is not paying off for your clients.
What is the opportunity cost?
The opportunity cost represents the rate of return on the investment alternative. This is needed to calculate the IRR. The opportunity cost represents the interest rate your clients would receive if you "invest" the investment capital in a bank instead of investing it in the PV system.
Can I store the waiting time for KLEIV/GREIV and how does this flow into the intervention calculation?
The waiting time is not taken into account in the simulation. The KLEIV/GREIV is deducted directly from the initial investment costs. Combination of different systems.
Is the energy demand of the heat pump taken into account when calculating the degree of independence/self-consumption?
Yes, if the corresponding consumption profile with a heat pump is selected, a "non-intelligent" heat pump that simply runs when heat is needed is taken into account.
