Why Solar Installers should use software

By Siddharth Gangal and Aarushi Dave

Solar installation needs intelligence, not intuition!  

We live in a country with a rapidly expanding solar industry, which very recently achieved the notable feat of 20GW of installed solar capacity and is also blessed with abundance of sunlight for most parts of the year. To add on to this is our ever-growing need for power. In short, it is a great time and place for a solar installer be.  

However, while this a great opportunity for installers to capitalise, there are still challenges that often surface in the process of installation. Problems related inefficiency with regards to the system design, improper placement and orientation of panels, and shading by objects such as trees around it, plague the installation process. In addition to this, surveying a site before the installation of panels, which when done manually, needs skilled manpower, and of course, utmost accuracy.   

These hurdles, if not overcome, can hamper the installed solar system from generating optimum amounts of electricity, and overall decrease the return on investment for the consumer. This in turn will led to loss of confidence the consumers have in the installers. After all, solar energy is supposed to be not just a medium of relief to the environment, but a relief to the pocket too!   

Thankfully, this is where solar software comes into the picture, making these obstacles problems of the past.   

Solar software brings with it the following benefits for installers:   

  • User Friendly: Reduce the complexities of the design process making it more accurate.  
  • Faster: Enables pre-designing projects remotely and faster 
  • Simplicity: Saves skilled manual labour effort and costs through remote site survey  
  • Quotations: Aids in easily and remotely creating sales quotations  
  • Savings: Helps installers estimate savings and returns of the consumers
