The Solar Survey Tool from SolarTools transforms the iPhone into the ultimate solar site-assessment tool an all-in-one device that enables solar industry professionals to conduct a complete and thorough residential/commercial site-assessment for the majority of solar applications.

The app takes you step by step through the process of gathering necessary information in the form of text, photo/audio notes and calculations. Then, with the touch of a button, all data entered into the solar survey is instantly formatted and emailed to you as a PDF. To learn more about the app, see the company video below.
