How can I use SolarFarmer for visualization?

SolarFarmer is great for visualizations. After laying out a site with trackers or fixed-tilt racks, use the export layout wizard to create either KMZ, shape files, or PVsyst project archive for select subset of sites. Exported KMZ opens in Google Earth automatically, then you can pan and zoom to get different angles to see your site. Here’s an example of the Kamogawa Mirai solar power plant in the mountains of Japan.
