Thanks to decreasing hardware costs, solar power has become one of the largest new energy sources added to the grid in recent years and is expected to lead the next generation of energy. This webinar will provide an overview of the process solar contractors use – from sales to installation – and the data required to successfully complete each project. We’ll also explore the ways this workflow has (and hasn’t) changed over the years, and what technology new and aspiring solar workers will need to know in order to help the industry keep pace with a growing demand for renewable energy.

Attendees will learn:

  • The solar process from sales to installation
  • What information is collected during a solar survey
  • What challenges today’s solar surveyors and designers face
  • How technology like drones, photogrammetry, and 3D modeling can help
