HOMER (Hybrid Optimization of Multiple Energy Resources), the micropower optimization model, simplifies the task of designing both off-grid and grid-connected power systems. HOMER Quickstart Beta is a free, online tool for estimating simple system designs. HOMER Pro has more advanced options to delve deeper into detailed system requirements.
Provide the project's location, load requirements, and your choice of components. HOMER then simulates all feasible configurations, generating a list sorted by net present cost. Clicking the "Details" button will render a custom report with tables and graphs you can export for use in reports and presentations. These results can answer general questions about technology options to inform planning and policy decisions.
