The solar_electric element is a child of the systems element. You can only submit one instance of the solar_electric element.
|Name||Description||Type||Length||Required||Options / Range|
|capacity_known||Is the capacity known?||int||No||1=yes, 0=no|
|system_capacity||DC capacity of system (kW)|
(only used if capacity_known is 1)
|float||No||0.05 - 100|
|num_panels||Number of panels in the system|
(only used if capacity_known is 0)
|int||No||1 - 100|
|year||Year system was installed||int||No||2000 - current year|
|array_azimuth||Direction panels face||string||20||No||north, north_east, east, south_east, south, south_west, west, north_west|
- If the DC capacity of the system is known then set capacity_known to 1 and enter system_capacity. Otherwise, set capacity_known to 0 and enter num_panels.
- The PV system will not be modeled if capacity_known is set to NIL (<capacity_known xsd:nil="true"/>).
