    Hi Ella:
    See PVWatts Calculator (nrel.gov)

    Simple to use, very accurate with the right simple inputs.  Answers and connected spreadsheets provided, in seconds.

    Cheers,
    Steve :-)

    A quick search will pull up the address, and you can then download the results or get it in X-cell.

    I believe Ella was asking about the custom-made feasibility Excel sheet as discussed in the YouTube video that builds upon the  Excel data sheet that you can download automatically from PV Watts basic info.  Felix, if you developed the custom feasibility Excel discussed in the YouTube video, are you willing to share it with others?
