Using ChatGPT for a solar power project can be one of the best things to try in 2023 after proving that this AI is more than capable of providing excellent solutions for the most complicated problems
Before using ChatGPT, know that this AI software is just text-based software, therefore, you should not take information as facts, and you must check and recalculate, also if you are investing a large amount of money you definitely may need an expert opinion.
If you are a Solar power expert then ChatGPT will be a fantastic tool to make calculations and information easier and more accurate based on the data you give them.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is a text-based language model that has been developed by OpenAi lab, it has a very large database of information, and it interacts with you like a human via chat, you are providing data and text and you get responses and information. In our text, we will use the 3.5 version
Note that version 4 is out and maybe it can provide you with much more.
How to use chatGPT for a solar power project
In normal use ChatGPT tends to give you short direct answers to your question, So in our case, we may need more details, so what did? I give a prompt for AI chatGPT to act like an expert.
You are an expert in solar energy, and your name is Alex.
For short answers just ask to not provide information, Or to say exact things like this.
You are an expert in solar energy, and your name is Alex. Say Hi no details
Now how i can use this software to my advantage, first I need to know what I need exactly.
First, we can start with very basic things like how many solar panels I need for my project. But ChatGPT can’t answer this question with no provided data.
But first, let’s start like this “How many solar panels do I need for my house ?“
As you can see the answer is generally exactly like our question! but it provided us with very valuable information to start.
Let’s break down the answer first:
- 1 – We need to know our energy consumption we can find this easily in our electricity bill
- 2 – The size of the roof
- 3 – The amount of sunlight your location receives
- 4 – Daily output of single solar panel in your area
I used the ChatGPT to provide me with fast and direct answers for all previous question
Now we have some data to provide for our AI software let’s try to get answers to our question How many solar panels do I need for my house?
To keep it short And direct I tried this question
My monthly electricity bill is around $92, I get 300 Days of sun each year, with an average of 8 hours of sunlight per day. my single solar power output is 1.9Kwh Based on the data how many panels do I need to cover my bill?
From the first look it look like the response was not accurate so i just asked the chatGPT to check again
and this was the update.
We can see that this more accurate answer! and based on this data provided by ChatGPT we can calculate the estimated cost of the materials.
You can start asking the number of inverters needed for 10 solar panels, then a list of all parts you will need.
Supposing you will install the solar panels in the ground, the prompt should look something like this “List all parts and items needed to install 10 solar panels on the ground, I will be using batteries to store excess energy produced”
I got a connection error but the AI software managed to finish the answer.
Now I will try to get estimation cost of the parts
Based on this litter experiment we can see that ChatGPT can provide some amazing and valuable information to help us with our project.
can we use ChatGPT for our solar panel project? Yes, but you need an expert opinion on the A.I will help you to know more information and not be scammed, and it’s a shortcut to finding more and fast information and knowing exactly what you need, to negotiate from a point of knowledge.
To be honest ChatGPT didn’t give you nothing really important or impressive. An obvious answer and some simple calculation and people is getting excited about it. LOL. Anyway, let’s people consume this.
Thank you very much for your comment, It is the start?
