Sense is partnering with BayWa r.e. to offer the Sense Pro Solar bundle to their network of solar partners nationwide. Sense Solar allows homeowners to track their solar power generation along with detailed, real-time information about their home electricity usage. By providing greater insights and opportunities for savings with Sense Solar, solar providers can build lasting partnerships with their customers and grow their businesses.
“Through this partnership, BayWa r.e. will bring Sense Solar to their extensive partner network in markets across the country,” said Sense VP Gabe Abbott. “With BayWa r.e.’s comprehensive offerings, solar providers can assemble best-in-class solar solutions in a seamless buying experience. Now Sense Solar helps providers to create greater energy awareness during the sale, reduce cancellations, and help customers maximize the value of their investment in solar.”
Sense Solar tells solar customers exactly how much energy their solar installation is producing, how much the home is using, and how much is being sold back to the grid—continuously, in real time. At the same time, Sense users see their home’s energy usage, right down to individual devices, so they can track, plan and budget realistically, taking full advantage of their solar investment. With Sense, customers instantly see the impact of reducing their energy use, helping improve satisfaction and opening the door for referrals to their providers.
Sense Solar is compatible with solar installations regardless of inverter or panel technology used. But when combined with installation of advancedAC solar modules from LG Electronics, Sense goes further, seamlessly connecting to the LG EnerVu2 energy monitoring app to increase the functionality and performance of the on-board LG software solution, providing a powerful experience for solar providers and their customers.
“BayWa r.e.’s dealers want to integrate the most up-to-date technology in their solutions for homes and businesses,” said Jodi White, co-CEO at BayWa r.e. Solar Systems LLC. “Our partnership with Sense offers solar contractors a way to accurately match solar and storage capacity to individual customers’ energy needs and lifestyles, creating greater system value for the end consumer.”
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.
