SolarMeter is an Android tool to estimate solar power and energy output of a solar cell panel at specific location.
You can't find a better source of energy then sunlight. It is presented in unlimited amount all over the globe, it's free and it has no destructive impact on the environment.
If you have ever thought of using this source, but have always had some doubts or questions as to "Is my location getting enough sunlight?", "Do I have enough area on my roof to cover my annual energy consumption?", "What side of my roof is more energy effective?", "How much area do I need to cover my energy needs?", "How would my energy bill change after PV system installation?", now you can answer all these questions using SolarMeter app for Android OS.
SolarMeter helps you to check how much solar power you are getting at your location throughout the year and to estimate energy a photovoltaic system will produce per month.
SolarMeter has following features:
Go green! Go Solar!
* These apps need to be installed to be able to use them for measurements.
** Make sure your Time Zone settings are correct.

For correct readings from tilt and orientation sensors use this version in Portrait mode.
Solar Measurement Live - solar power calculation for your current location based on orientation and tilt of your device. Use device screen as a solar panel. Rotate your device or face it towards the sun to see how it affects irradiance result. Touch the screen to start/stop real time calculations. Make sure you have calibrated your device before using this mode and your Time Zone settings are correct.
Roof Measurement - use Planimeter or/and Partometer to estimate roof area or space needed for solar cell panel installation. Different units are available.
Note: Planimeter and Partometer have to be installed to be able to use them in for measurements.
Calculate solar power and energy, estimate solar panel energy generation based on location, orientation, tilt and panel area. Values can be manually entered or retrieved from your android device GPS and sensors for current device position.
Note: Device orientation range is from -180 to 180 degrees with 0 degree towards North.
Clockwise is positive and counterclockwise is negative directions.
