Adeyemo said there have
been hundreds of improvements to the system since
its launch. Among those
improvements are LIDAR
mapping and a function
called AutoDesigner, which
allows users to enter parameters — the percentage of
energy to offset or amount of
bill savings — and the system
will generate the best design
to meet those objectives.
“We have a feature where
you can use Google Street
View to pull up information
like the slope of roofs and the
height of buildings,” Adeyemo
said. “And we have another feature where you can automatically
detect all the obstructions on a commercial building roof surface.
We don’t want our clients to travel to a site until they have a paying customer, and those are the kind of features that allow us to
continue pushing the envelope.”
Te Path to Interoperability
Other solar design software providers take a similar approach to
Aurora, offering a functioning suite that delivers ease of use to
employees across an organization.
Folsom Labs, which has been offering its integrated design software HelioScope since 2014, says its product shortens the learning
curve for solar PV system design and opens up the bottleneck that
can occur when, i.e., one engineer drives the entire design process.
“When the sales person can own the design experience, it’s
the single biggest driver of ROI for Folsom’s customers — it’s pure
ease of use,” Folsom Labs Co-founder Paul Grana said.
But at Folsom Labs, an integrated system is not the sole
