SOLO Accuracy

Accuracy is the most important asset you can find when looking for a proposal platform to use. SOLO is constantly changing and adapting our platform software to ensure we provide the best accuracy in shading, setbacks, panel placement, and pricing details on the proposal we deliver to our clients. Such accuracy in every aspect of the proposal is paramount, as sales representatives and clients are able to close more deals and increase their rate of client installation.

NREL Software Integration

SOLO uses NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) certified software with artificial intelligence and solar mapping to ensure accuracy and reliable analysis; this ensures that SOLO, above all competitors, will deliver accurate analysis and results. When a sales rep creates a customer in the SOLO system, the address gets sent over to NREL where the calculations immediately begin. NREL research and development, using real-time photovoltaic analysis and solar resource testing along with resources such as weather stations, panels, shading inputs, Azimuth, and tilt, also provides us with the information we need to make your solar system last the longest possible, at the cheapest price. NREL provides the perfect software for ensuring accuracy; to ensure effective and efficient placement of solar panels, NREL teams use certified AI drones to scan and analyze homes and solar placements. According to NREL, “this will reduce the time investment of planning and analysis that today requires many human hours”.

Clear & Concise Visual Understanding

Not only this, but SOLO has a direct connection to Google’s Project SunRoof. This helps both sales reps and customers gain a better visual understanding of TSRF (total solar resource fraction) on their very own roof. The detailed analysis from Project Sunroof helps Reps determine the best placement of panels to both optimize solar production and reduce shading on the customer’s home. SOLO also has direct access to DSM (digital surface modeling) provided by Google, which is utilized for tilt, azimuth, and available space for panels. Going along with seamless visual representation for both reps and clients, SOLO has access to multiple image services such as Google Image, Google 3D, and Nearmaps that serve to give a wide variety of options to get the best view of the home in order to analyze variants such as heat signatures and shading.

PV System Reliability

Reliability of PV systems is also vital in solar installation. NREL specializes in “PV reliability research and development” that will provide SOLO with the tools we need to “improve PV product lifetime, availability, and performance and decrease the operation and maintenance costs of PV systems”. This uses scientific studies to make sure the PV systems we install don’t degrade or fail over time, making sure we are providing the best of the best to our clients. “Real-time photovoltaic analysis and solar resource testing” accelerates the testing, analytics, and installation of our solar system for our clients. Each panel and Inverter that we enter into SOLO will use every detail within the data sheet, from dimensions to degradation, ensuring customers will get the most accurate results from PVWatts.

Speed, accuracy, and reliability. SOLO provides all of this and more in a dynamic proposal that is live in minutes with custom branding, remote presentation capabilities, integrated lending options, instant “in-proposal” updates, and live chat.

The SOLO all-in-one ops service of proposals, integrated doc management, and next day turnarounds on CAD & Engineering streamline the sales process, optimizing deal closure and efficiency.

SOLO Pre-Qual

SOLO Pre-Qual

You may have noticed a new button in your SOLO experience that say’s “Pre-qual.” This is SOLO and Sunlight’s latest collaboration – the SOLO-Integrated Pre-qualification Tool!

You can now run a soft pull of credit with your customer and in less than 10 seconds have a result. Sunlight recommends pre-qualifying one titleholder at a time before you run a full credit application to provide the smoothest closing experience to your customers.

 

What are the benefits? 

  • Pre-qualification is a soft pull of credit that does not affect your customer’s FICO score
  • Allows you to run multiple titleholders quickly to confirm who is the best fit for the credit application
  • Typically, will only require the customer to enter their individual annual income

Top solar salespeople love using Sunlight’s pre-qualification tool to maximize their close rate. We’ll be sending out more information on how to user this tool soon. In the meantime, feel free to try it out today – remember that once your customer is pre-qualified you can move seamlessly to the credit application. 

If you have questions about this new SOLO – Sunlight enhancement feel free to reach out to your SOLO account manager today.
