The Elevate Distributed Generation Solar Pro Forma was created to provide users with a simple tool to assess the financial performance of installed solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.
The pro forma is designed primarily for behind-the-meter installations, but it offers flexibility to adjust electricity and net metering rates to accommodate most installations. Users can enter only a few high-level inputs and get meaningful financial analysis. Additionally, the Detailed Inputs page allows advanced users to adjust many parameters for more nuanced system design and import production data from common design software platforms.
The outputs provide a number of important financial metrics, including simple payback, return on investment, net present value, and internal rate of return. The cashflow page provides details for each year for the life of the system.
