Nearmap on OpenSolar is an end-to-end design and sales toolkit that makes communicating the value of solar easy with accurate, beautiful designs supported by premium imagery.

Nearmap imagery is built into the OpenSolar platform, so you'll get access to our full library of frequently updated Vertical and Oblique imagery, according to what your Nearmap subscription includes. All you need is an address to get started, and you can select the aerial view that best meets your needs.

With a complete end-to-end solar sales toolkit, you’ll get a multitude of features to design a system up to 1MW, roughly 3,000 panels. In putting together a quote for a customer, simply add panels to a roof, set azimuth/slope, add shading percentages, include/exclude batteries and inverters, and more. On the back end, you can customise your own equipment catalogue with product and pricing modules. The opportunities are endless, and the best way to get the full run down is to chat with one of our representatives. Please contact us for more details!
