SimplySolar is a solar panel alignment app designed to increase the viability of solar energy and positively change the lifestyles of people in developing countries. As of right now it is more economically viable to buy more solar panels than buy a solar tracking system that automatically aligns solar panel/solar thermal heaters. SimplySolar replaces expensive alignment tools and solar tracking systems with a clever algorithm and a few tools to aid in manually adjusting a solar panel to increase the amount of energy output by up to 30%, helping create sustainable communities with a higher standard of living.

It cant get any simpler! Only issue I had was there is a compass to orient to begin so it that is suppose to be functional it does not work but despite that everything else is a breeze! I tilted mine while in the desert and almost doubled the input! I didnt expect it to make that much difference but the sun was low enough on the horizon that it was very ineffective. I love this app!
Helped me tremendously
This app helped me tremendously in setting my camera solar panels up. 10/10
The interface is very easy to use and makes aiming solar panels a breeze.
P.s. thanks for the response, devs. Sorry for the initial review...
Developer Response ,
Thanks for pointing this out. It's only supposed to show up after 3 uses. Will fix.
Great solar alignment tool
This alignment tool works intuitively without guess work to adjust the best panel angles for the most optimized performance. Great app.
