Greentech Media highlights Nearmap's HD aerial imagery and its impact on today's solar industry. 

It's a well known fact that errors in quoting and estimating solar installations can result in a substantial amount of loss in potential income. Aurora Solar (a San Francisco-based provider of PV design software) surveyed more than 200 U.S. solar installers and found that—on average—a solar installer spends over $500 in change orders. These errors can be avoided by leveraging current HD aerial maps.  

The errors can lead to negative outcomes, including excessive site visits to a customer’s property and potentially poor word of mouth from unhappy customers. Compounded across the solar industry, these are also the type of inefficiencies that have kept soft costs stubbornly high, even as panels, inverters and other types of equipment have consistently gotten cheaper."

At the most basic level, the aerial maps solar installers can use today to produce sales presentations and plan for efficient installations are far more accurate and detailed — and will only become more so in the near future.”
