  • SunPower and EagleView, a leading modern technology company of aerial analytics, today revealed a brand-new arrangement to minimize solar setup timelines and costs.

SunPower has combined EagleView's high-resolution Roof Reports with the brand-new mySunPower Home Survey application, enabling the business's solar installers as well as contractors to create precise, construction-ready solar styles without a house see. The function set is now available to the company's across the country network of more than 600 SunPower household dealerships.

Every brand-new solar installation calls for a custom-made style tailored to the home's one-of-a-kind roof covering and also electric system.

With constraints consisting of customer timetables, climate, drone training as well as qualification, in-person surveys are cumbersome for homeowners, pricey for installers and expand solar setup cycle timelines.

The mySunPower Home Survey app with EagleView Roof Reports provides installers all the information they require to develop final solar layouts without site check outs. The app is designed to replace ladder-climbing and drone photography with industry-first equipment discovering modern technology. Straight from the application, house owners take images of their residence's structural as well as electric components from ground degree. SunPower's patent-pending expert system software program instantly assesses pictures as well as supplies real-time comments to home owners on photo completeness and clarity. EagleView Roof Reports consist of airborne imagery and also exclusive 3D versions that clarify roofing system features with unprecedented accuracy.

By eliminating the in-person site study, SunPower can reduce project cycle times by as much as two weeks as well as get rid of expenses associated with sending out a site surveyor to the house.

" By matching our exclusive software application with EagleView's ingenious technology, we can minimize solar soft prices and also create a far better consumer experience," claimed Norm Taffe, executive VP of SunPower. "EagleView was an apparent option provided their up-to-date airborne imagery from their aircraft fleet, high-resolution 3D designs, as well as brief turnaround time for roof reports."

For greater than 20 years, EagleView has actually been capturing high-resolution oblique and orthogonal airborne imagery with proprietary cam systems set up on their own low-flying airplane. With patented as well as tried and tested computer system vision innovations, EagleView digitizes structures to produce very exact three-dimensional versions of houses supplied as their Inform for Solar product. These 3D models have actually been supplied as a range of data collections for different sectors for over a decade.

" We are delighted to see this degree of innovation by SunPower encouraged by our data," claimed Piers Dormeyer, president of building and energies at EagleView. "We expect aiding property owners across the United States go solar."
