Sungevity Debuts Instant Solar Quoting Technology

July 14, 2014 By Karen Henry

iQuote-energy-manageSungevity has introduced the Instant Solar Quote (Instant iQuote) platform, which can generate residential solar installation quotes based solely on street address. The platform is being piloted at select Lowe’s stores in California.

Instant iQuote generates an immediate proposal and can also be used to quickly assess the solar potential of entire cities, counties and countries for retailers, utilities and other partners.

The new quoting platform combines LIDAR (remote sensing technology), aerial imagery and real estate parcel data to produce a 3D model of the property at a given address. Hundreds of design variations can be generated for that address, based on factors such as roof pitch and shading. Instant iQuote provides the customer with the most optimal solar configurations, installation cost and estimated savings. Results can be modified on the spot based on design preferences, actual energy usage and other variables.

The Instant iQuote technology currently covers more than 1.5 million homes in California.
