PVProfit – Dynamic calculation of the profitability of photovoltaic plants

How high - or how low - is the yield of a grid-connected photovoltaic system? This question is not easy to answer without business management tools. A purely static estimate of when the EEG feed-in revenues will have "recouped" the investment costs does not lead to reliable return calculations.

PVProfit is a dynamic calculation programme which can be used to determine the economic efficiency of PV systems which are supported by a feed-in tariff under the EEG. The programme takes into account investment costs as well as operating and credit costs and an internal rate of return on capital employed. The capital costs in particular have a considerable influence on the amortization period and thus on the profitability of a photovoltaic system.

Features
  • Comparison of different loans
  • Influence on the service life of the components used (inverter failure)
  • Influence of costs on inflation adjustable (inflation of operating costs)
  • Splitting the total price into individual items (inverter, PV modules, frame system, cables and assembly)
  • Clear representation, thanks to "floating windows“
  • Extensive printouts (colour and black and white), individually adjustable range of printouts
  • Project management, in order to be able to better compare different economic analyses (including archived ones)
