Bosch Solar Energy now has an app available for iPhone and iPad, which allows users to analyse solar yields just by putting their phone on the roof. This is a great way to give residential and commercial prospects a quick and easy estimation of the economics of a PV solar installation using Bosch Solar Energy products.

Bosch Solar Friend – Seek the sun and start a solar friendship that works worldwide!
Saving energy costs and simultaneously helping to protect the environment – not possible? Think again and look no further than your roof.
The new Bosch Solar Friend helps you analyze your rooftop conditions and determine the best system for solar power generation at any location worldwide.
Bosch Solar Friend makes it really easy to estimate the average annual energy yield that can be expected when installing Bosch solar modules on your rooftop. Simply align your iPhone with your roof, and you are done – all relevant parameters are automatically determined using the internal functions of your iPhone (like compass and GPS). For comparison with other locations, a manual input is possible as well.
By additionally specifying your roof size and the operation time of the system, you will also get information on the ideal number of modules, the overall energy yield over operation time, the total earnings for your country (depending on your FiT´s) and the amount of CO2 saved by your photovoltaic system.
There is more: the Bosch Solar Friend also leads you directly to special sales contacts, shows references of Bosch Solar Energy projects and helps you contact Bosch via website, telephone and Facebook.
NOTE: The use of Bosch Solar Friend is not intended to replace a detailed planning procedure by a qualified installer. Special local environment conditions such as trees, buildings and other shadowing obstacles may alter the actual possible energy yield. The given revenue data represent approximate values for shadow-free systems.
