Managing Users
SolarAnywhere users can have one of two roles: standard users and license managers.
Standard users can download data and receive service notifications.
License Managers have additional permissions including:
  • User management: add, remove, and promote users
  • License management: manage permissions and gain instant access to new services, which may be billable events
Only authorized persons from your company should be License Managers. License managers are encouraged to:
  • Add colleagues to your license, ensuring that everyone has access to the data they need.
  • Remove users who no longer need access, which helps keep your data secure.
Only current employees of your company are permitted to use your SolarAnywhere license. This ensures that your data including data access, company user names, download history, and site names are kept confidential.
Giving a third-party access to your data is a violation of the SolarAnywhere license agreement. If you need to give a third-party access to your data, please contact
Importing Your Data Into PVsyst
Follow the steps in this video to learn how to successfully import your SolarAnywhere data downloads into PVsyst.
If you are planning to use the relative humidity field in your PVsyst projects, download and import your SolarAnywhere data in the native SolarAnywhere format. While you can include relative humidity data in TMY3 format downloads, PVsyst cannot read this field when you import the data in this format.
