Intersolar - Aurora Solar Surpasses 500 MW of PV Designs

Since launching in January, Aurora's software is already processing over 1,000 PV projects per week and has created over 500 MW of designs

PALO ALTO, Calif., July 14, 2015 -- The need to reduce soft costs has never been greater in the solar industry. In order to boost productivity, solar companies need powerful software to increase their sales closing rate, automate processes and reduce their operational overhead. Solar sales and design software makes companies more effective by reducing overhead and increasing scalability of sales and engineering workflows.


Introducing Aurora

Aurora's cloud-based solar sales and design platform is quickly emerging as the leading choice for solar sales and design professionals to give them an edge against the competition. Since launching in January of this year, Aurora has been used to design over 550 MW worth of PV installations. Aurora is now processing over 1,000 projects a week from a growing number of solar installers across the US and overseas.

How can software help solar companies?

Aurora's cloud-based platform gives solar installers the ability to quickly build accurate 3D models of a site, perform an accurate remote shade analysis, and lay out modules in just a few clicks. The accuracy of Aurora's performance engine has been validated by NREL and Aurora's shade-assessment tools has been tested by top nationwide firms, who are using Aurora to reduce truck rolls and time spent on the roof. Furthermore, Aurora enables installers to run a detailed financial analysis of their projects with just a few clicks.
