How does PVCAD calculate production?

PVCAD uses NREL's System Advisor Model (SAM). SAM's performance model calculates hour-by-hour data of a solar system's electrical output for all 8,760 hours in a year. These data are available in monthly and hourly outputs that you can download in Excel format.
