Issues/Question:

Can I run layout(s) with an imported weather file?


Solution:

You can run layouts with an imported weather file by first uploading the weather file first.  

  1. In the SunDAT menu, go to Energy Analysis.  Then go to Select weather file format to import local file input and select the file type of the weather file
  2. With the weather file imported, go to Site Overview and expand.  Go to Choose Weather Source file and select the imported weather file (Note: your imported weather file will only appear after your project has been created in Project Setup)
  3. After the weather file has been set, then go to PV Layout panel in the SunDAT menu and run a layout.  Now the layout runs will use the imported weather file to create production estimates in layout results.
