Solar racking system provider K2 Systems has a free online design tool, Base, where customers can design their K2 racking system projects and manage multiple PV projects within one dashboard. Now, once the design stage is complete, users are able to click the K2+ feature to connect with GreenLancer for permitting and engineering services. By using this integration, GreenLancer will automatically be given the project design from Base so their team can provide accurate services for your specific design plans.
GreenLancer is an online marketplace for solar installers to get standardized permit design and engineering solutions with speed, scale and reliability. The platform allows for batch project management, inapp communication, and a team of support specialists to help solar businesses save time and money.
Here’s how the API bridge between K2 Base and GreenLancer works:
On the Summary tab of K2 Base, you will be able to see all of your project design details. Click a button that says K2+ GreenLancer and you will be prompted to select your permit or engineering services.
Select your desired permitting or engineering services package and then you will be transferred to the GreenLancer website.
Once on their website, you’ll see that your project data from Base was seamlessly transferred
over so that the GreenLancer team is easily able to review it. Your Base .k2o file and PDF
report will be accessible through GreenLancer.
From here you can pay for your permitting services and let the GreenLancer team work on the
rest of it for you.
The engineering review or permitting pack will be complete within 48 hours of submittal, and you
will receive it by email.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
