OpenSolar partners with Solar Outlet
After projects are designed and sold on the OpenSolar platform, solar professionals can add the entire kit list instantly to the new OpenSolar cart and buy the equipment from Solar Outlet.
“Our integration will remove a significant amount of guesswork and manual data entry by the solar professional,” Light Touch Solar CEC-accredited electrician Jimi Gatland says.
“According to one of the early beta testers, it’s easier than ordering a pizza online.”
The system provides real-time equipment availability as they design, allowing them to sell only what they know they can install.
In addition to per-project purchasing, the new hardware ordering function simplifies bulk ordering while still allowing professionals to enjoy their usual trade prices and discounts, but without pen and paper tracking and time-consuming phone calls.
Hardware ordering on OpenSolar is intended to continue to break down silos in the solar installer’s workflow so that their businesses can grow unimpeded. This post-sale functionality is offered at no additional cost to the professionals or their customers, just like the rest of OpenSolar’s free-of-charge design and sales platform.
