Photovoltaic tools

Hi everybody,

i am having a look more or less for the first time to the Photovoltaic tools and i would like to ask you some questions to clarify the component and their use:

Thanks a lot in advance


Hi Claudia,

Ladybug Photovoltaics components are based on NREL PVWatts model.
Honeybee Photovoltaics components are based on Energy plus model.

I am sure the author of Honeybee Photovoltaics will help you with your bug.

Hi Claudia, It should be fixed if you’re using a newer version than June 10. Let us know if you can regenerate the error.

Hi Mostapha,

thanks a lot for your quick reply and for your work with HoneyBee!

I have just updated the components (mostly manually) and i still have this error:

“1. Solution exception:extractPoints() takes at most 4 arguments (5 given)” which i don`'t understand.

Do you know what could it be?

Thanks a lot in advance


You need to update all the components. The error is because of version discrepancy.
