Auric accesses Nearmap imagery through the Aurora
Solar platform, a solar sales and design software program. By
utilizing Aurora software integrated with Nearmap imagery, Auric
analysts have access to crystal clear and current imagery.
“Aurora’s responsive engineering interface coupled with Nearmap’s
high-resolution captures allow us to use a combination of 3-D lidar
models and 2-D high-resolution maps for complete accuracy in the
planning and measuring stage of a project. This equips both the sales
and analytics teams with accurate information to save time, money and
serve the customer,” said Tyler Soukup, Director of Analytics at Auric
Analysts can make accurate measurements, run production numbers,
identify roof obstructions and craft proposals all within the program.
The sales team, analysts and installers are all on the same
page—significantly reducing change orders.
Auric also has access to Nearmap historical imagery from years past,
including leaf-on and leaf-off imagery—the presence or lack of the
foliage depending on the season. This greatly enhances shading analysis,
making it easier to place the panels for maximum sun exposure.
The company not only saves a significant amount of time with less onsite
visits to qualify homes, but it also opens up more customers to solar.
“We’ve been able to qualify more customers than ever because of
Nearmap’s clear, current captures. You really can't accurately qualify a
property without up-to-date imagery,” notes Soukup.
With annotated, high-resolution imagery incorporated into proposals,
customers are impressed and have a clear understanding of the project.
“We quote projects from $20,000 to a few million dollars, and our
proposals, plans and marketing materials should match that level of
value,” said Soukup. “Nearmap helps us achieve that. It creates a ‘wow’
Before using Nearmap aerial imagery, Auric resorted to using
low-resolution satellite imagery to qualify properties. With outdated,
blurry imagery, it was difficult to make accurate measurements and
qualify a home before sending a technician for an on-site assessment.
Solar is one of the fastest growing companies in the nation, with
recognition on three consecutive Inc. 5000 lists and offices in
Colorado, Idaho, Oregon and Utah.
