Design whole-home electrification plans in Aurora Solar

Solar installers are morphing into home electrification contractors. The business evolution makes sense considering how solar, batteries, EV chargers, and power control systems all relate and interact. Actually selling and designing a coherent “electrified home” system is another matter though. Aurora Solar, the leading platform for solar sales and design, is ready to step in and help. Aurora announced new tools for solar pros to estimate a homeowner’s holistic energy needs and design whole-home electrification plans.

According to Aurora Solar’s 2024 Solar Industry Snapshot, 10 percent of homeowners want to electrify their home before considering solar and 37 percent feel solar panels are more valuable when paired with whole-home electrification.

With unpredictable utility policies and rising electricity prices, Aurora’s new offerings help homeowners create an energy efficient home for years to come with a solar-plus-storage system built for their specific needs.

Aurora’s set of whole home energy management features will be released throughout the summer; comprehensive storage modeling is available today. Learn how to design whole-home electrification plans and schedule a personalized demo here.
