Developer or Source: Homer Energy

HOMER is the global standard in micro grid software. The HOMER model greatly simplifies the task of designing hybrid renewable micro grids, whether remote or attached to a larger grid. HOMER’s optimization and sensitivity analysis algorithms allow you to evaluate the economic and technical feasibility of a large number of technology options and to account for variations in technology costs, electric load, and energy resource availability.
