SAN FRANCISCO, CA, US, June 8, 2021 / — OpenSolar, Inc., and GreenLancer, Inc. today announced a new partnership in which the two companies will integrate their solar technology solutions to provide solar professionals with a turn-key, streamlined process for designing, selling, and engineering solar systems in the U.S. Starting on June 9, 2021 on, solar professionals can utilize the end-to-end solution that includes OpenSolar’s free-of-charge 3D design technology and digital sales tools, and also obtain on-demand, customized permitting proposals through GreenLancer at prices that average 50% less than the average permitting cost. As a result, the partnership will enable solar professionals to scale their businesses with increased efficiency and cost-savings.

As solar adoption continues to grow year-over-year, related markets and businesses alike begin to benefit from economies of scale. However, U.S. solar installers and their customers in turn, suffer from over twice the cost experienced by their overseas counterparts due to high costs related to the entire permitting process in the U.S. GreenLancer makes solar design and engineering simple and fast for installers with straightforward, lightning-speed access to permitting, design, and engineering services that will most certainly accelerate the adoption of solar energy while reducing costs.

“With thousands of installers using OpenSolar now in over 100 countries we understand how to make critical services affordable and accessible at scale,” said Andrew Birch, Co-Founder of OpenSolar. “Combining GreenLancer’s made-to-order engineering services with OpenSolar’s 3D design and digital sales platform will help U.S. installers get all the tools they need in one place to grow more quickly and profitably.”
