Here is what some of our global community of HOMER users have to say about HOMER:
The best hourly assessment tool for hybrid renewable electric generation systems in the world – bar none.
Dr. Jan F. Kreider
Building Systems Program, University of Colorado, USA
We are amazed at both the thoroughness of the software and the design complexity that it allows us to relatively quickly evaluate. To our knowledge, there is no other software on the market that matches HOMER for the purpose of designing renewable energy systems.

Everbody I know who is working with HOMER is amazed.
Tittmann Solar GmbH, Germany
HOMER is superb.
Javier Sanz Rodriguez
I'm creating a comparative database of PV design software in cooperation with Sharp (Japan) Corporation's Ecological Technology Development Center in Nara, Japan. I've found HOMER to be incredibly robust and the best application available for system comparison among the 15 or so programs covered.

Your program is amazing and I love it.
Southwest Windpower, USA
HOMER is a unique tool that provides a depth of analysis simply impossible by any other means at my disposal.
Your program rocks! HOMER has replaced about a dozen spreadsheets and countless tables. Thanks for the great program.
Dwellsol Design and Consulting, USA
I love your software. It has really enhanced the way I approach design.

I find the technical support for HOMER is always speedy and helpful. It's one of the aspects of this tool that I find invaluable...
HOMER is a beautiful thing... it doesn't crash, it does most everything you could want it to, and it actually presents results in an intuitive/understandable manner.
Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory, Georgia Tech, USA
The support staff is wonderful. The program is outstanding.

Associate Professor at University of Nevada, Reno, USA
Congratulations for HOMER. Very useful and simple to use in the context of Rural Africa.
PREDAS-CILSS, Burkina Faso
We find the program easy to use and straightforward and it has been great help in sorting out myriad possibilities. HOMER presents results in a clear and concise manner, making decisions easy.
Interwind AG, Switzerland
HOMER allows simple apples to apples comparisons of drastically different system designs. It convinced me of the utility of wind power in my situation. It taught me the importance of a properly sized battery bank. It has provided me with the data to convince most of the stakeholders of the importance of switching from a gasoline generator to a generator/battery/renewable system.
Very easy to use and analytically powerful. I was able to get a simple system up and running quickly so that I could learn by doing.
Meridian Energy Limited, New Zealand
We make great use of the HOMER tool. We have been designing solar only [telecom] sites for many years and recently started adding wind to help during winter storms. Before using HOMER we had no predictable way to evaluate the contribution from the wind turbine.
BanDao Associates, LLC, USA
I have just started to use HOMER and have found it fantastic. It is very easy to use, the getting started manual is excellent and the range of different types of outputs makes demonstrating the theoretical application of RE technology very easy.
Murdoch University, Australia
I'm really happy with your software! I find it a very good tool for understanding hybrid systems and their optimization - very user-friendly interfaces.
