As a solar installer, you know that competition can be fierce and potential buyers can be extremely choosy when deciding on an installer. In this article, we’ve outlined a few ways that incorporating shading information in your proposals can save you time and boost your sales.
Firstly, let’s go over the basics of Solargraf’s one-click Shading Analysis feature: This technology works by combining Google Project Sunroof’s map imagery and machine learning to determine the solar potential of the roof you are working on in Solargraf. You can then use this information to present a proposal and a solar panel design that is fully optimized for the amount of sun exposure your client’s roof gets all year.
Now, let’s dive in to how you can use this feature to your advantage and close more sales with Solargraf all while saving precious time.
1) Make your design easy for anyone to understand.
While there are many technical products and solutions available for installers to use to mitigate their system shading losses out there, it’s not always easy to communicate this to your clients.
Not everyone understands what a bypass diode is and your average person might not know anything about inverters or microinverters either. While it may be your job to answer your prospect’s questions and help them understand all the components of their solar systems, having simple visuals can work wonders for their understanding.
