OpenSolar, the only entirely free solar design and sales platform, is adding EagleView’s aerial imaging and property data as an option.
Available now in public beta, installers can order and import EagleView data directly into the OpenSolar platform, adding an additional layer of site assessment accuracy and expected solar performance validation.
“EagleView represents a strong, premium addition to our industry-leading solar design and sales platform” said Andrew Birch, Co-Founder and CEO at OpenSolar. “EagleView’s property, roofing, and solar data is a preferred option for many US installers who value added precision on site diligence so it’s terrific to make this high-quality option available on OpenSolar.”
The solution will enable installers to get to installation weeks faster with detailed site data on-hand, allowing for more efficient on-site visits, and often eliminating costly truck rolls to validate designs. In addition, the integration will provide permit-ready CAD files to streamline plan set development. The OpenSolar team says the accuracy of EagleView imaging + data can help U.S. installers cut install times by as much as 2 weeks.
Installers can use EagleView data as part of an initial proposal as well as with final design plans.
“This latest EagleView innovation automatically populates EagleView’s leading data sets into OpenSolar’s extremely popular and flexible solar design platform” said Peter Cleveland, Vice President, Solar Business. “A well-planned sales and design approach eliminates truck rolls and provides for highly efficient site visits when necessary, saving valuable time and expense, and gets projects installed faster.”
