There is simply no better way to reduce energy consumption than to compare options in an audit platform on an individual load basis. Avoid typical mistakes like incorrect technology selection or sizing. Avoid spending time and money focussing on stereotypical loads. A standard family home should use no more than 12kW.h/day without the aid of PV generation. Identify and focus on the correct appliances. Avoid disappointment later, make sure you have all the facts.
The energy profile of a home is not a single dynamic mass changing unpredictably. It is actually made up of numerous loads that are generally repetitive by nature. Jacara Models allow the isolation and dealing with loads on an individual basis.
Accurate data recorded over a two week period together with our unique audit platform is the first step towards energy independence. Using a specialized audit platform avoids guessing, whilst aiding in the correct selection of technology and size of efficiency measures. Understand, prioritise and plan the impact and viability of energy efficiency measures.
Many significant residential loads are seasonal, even this can accurately be incorporated into Jacara. Incorporate seasonal effect by removing or reducing specific loads during non-operational months as well as adding loads from the Jacara Database for appliances that were non-operational during data collection.
There is simply no better way to predict the financial viability of a PV system and fine tune the design than to use a PV design simulator. Avoid typical mistakes like incorrect system selection or generation-consumption profile mismatch. Use the correct battery technologies as well as the sizing to meet expectation. Our financial simulator will calculate battery life and incorporate battery life for an accurate ROI. Avoid disappointment later, take the time to ensure correct design.
Any PV design should start with the actual energy profile of an efficient home, and this is exactly what Jacara Designer does. Jacara Designer utilizes the highly accurate post efficiency data directly from Jacara Models in the PV simulation platform. The data from Jacara Models will incorporate seasonal changes accurately, understand this requirement and design system to incorporate this element. Eliminate the need to “oversize” and remove the guessing margin.
Jacara is the only PV design platform that includes all the common tariffs, including generator, and can accurately simulate the feasibility of all the different types of PV systems taking all these factors into account. Unlike most PV design tools that are simply yield simulators, Jacara Designer brings all the variable factors into one platform to give you an accurate simulation of what is actually going to transpire, allowing you to make an informed decision.
Brief description of all available systems
and there attribues
All the types of electricity tariffing Jacara offers
Fixed rate per kW.h of energy consumed. This tariff could have line charges
The rates vary depending on time of day, day of week and time of the year
Tariff has a fixed cost per KW.h consumed but also a maximum demand charge for largest peak draw
Energy is charged in blocks. As the user consumes more the cost of energy increases
Small Scale Energy Generator. This tariff is used where import and export have different rates. Usually also has a fixed charge associated
Calculates the fuel and maintenance cost of operating a generator for electricity
