Solar Site Selector

A shading predictor and sun-path indicator with our exclusive MCS-aid transparent acetate foil. The Solar Site Selector is a small but essential investment for solar thermal and PV installers, and can assist with the MCS shading method.

The MCS method uses boxes on a sunpath diagram to estimate shading. Our MCS-aid transparent acetate foil slots into the Solar Site Selector, superimposing the sunpath diagram over your vision. You can plot your direction with the compass, then draw your landscape sketch directly on to the acetate.
