EagleView and OpenSolar partner to help US solar professionals cut soft costs and install timelines
SAN FRANCISCO – Mar 7 2023--OpenSolar Pty Ltd, a software company focused on empowering solar installers with the world’s most accurate and entirely free solar design and sales platform, and EagleView, a leading provider of aerial imaging and property data, have partnered to enable solar professionals to streamline and enhance their designs, proposals, and site assessments with highly accurate aerial imaging, digital property measurements, and solar data.
Available now in public beta, OpenSolar’s leading solar design and proposal software integrates EagleView data, enabling installers to create precise solar designs and digital site assessments – before even setting foot on-site. 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. 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. Installers can use EagleView data as part of an initial proposal as well as with final design plans.
“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.”
“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.”
