BERKELEY, Calif. | Bright Harvest —
A new validation study conducted by NREL (PDF) has found Bright Harvest’s remote shading analysis to be scientifically equivalent to the Solmetric SunEye. The study also evaluated other key measurements needed to accurately design residential systems with equally positive results.
“This study reflects what our clients have been confirming for years. We are excited to lead the industry into a new era in residential solar design where we can reduce soft costs and dramatically increase operational efficiencies for all solar stakeholders,” said Joel Lusk, CEO at Bright Harvest.
Optimizing the Residential Transaction
The need to collect on-site measurements to qualify and design residential solar has long been a prominent barrier to lowering transaction costs. Bright Harvest has revolutionized the process of remotely gathering information needed to analyze a site and design the best system, giving their clients the ability to quickly install precisely optimized PV systems.
Bright Harvest’s unique module-level analysis guides the creation of a comprehensive design that includes a shading analysis, scaled site plan and detailed production estimates. This reduces errors introduced by a process that formerly required many people, steps and equipment. Bright Harvest’s ground breaking approach to streamlining project cycles mitigates risks and improves technical transparency.
With this validation, Bright Harvest expects the number of financial institutions and incentive programs accepting their analysis to continue increasing. This marks a major turning point away from current on-site tools which are beginning to sunset.
