Produce alternative energy systems.

GnuAE is a GNOME/GTK compliant GUI for designing photovoltaic and wind powered houses with compliance to the National Electrical Code. As GnuAE has a database of components and current average prices, it can help you judge the total cost of a system by experimenting with different options like using a propane or DV fridge, or more or less reserve days or hours of sun.

GnuAE is also designed to make it much easier to wire for NEC code compliance without studying all 800 some pages of the NEC specification. Even for an electrician, the interdependencies between calculations is daunting. While DC wiring is much simpler than AC wiring, most off-grid household systems are both. There is even a built in NEC calculator for people that have a good feel for what they are doing, but want to also experiment with differing conduit sizes, parallel wire runs, and voltage drop.
