The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has released a study evaluating the accuracy of Sighten’s automated shading tool, showing that Sighten remote shading estimates are nearly identical to measurements taken on site. The Department of Energy-affiliated lab found that Sighten's shading tool generated the most accurate shading estimates of all software applications evaluated by NREL to date.
