Step 1 – Review the first tutorial. Check it out here.
Step 2 – Next step… within the Geometry area, select Site Shading and draw your external obstruction. Give each obstruction you add a height.
Step 3 – Next, under Renewable Energy, draw the area where you would like to apply PV to your design. Click the area drawn, and add performance assumptions.
