Under one roof: Integrated PV + racking design for efficiency and accuracy

Blog Main

Ask any solar installer and they’ll tell you that solar design and racking design are two halves of the whole. 

In the dynamic world of solar design, racking plays a critical role in shaping the efficiency and effectiveness of every installation. But rarely do you find a tool or system where these two halves come together to enable a seamless design and installation. That’s why Aurora Solar is proud to announce the launch of our racking partner ecosystem — where solar design and racking design finally live under one roof. Our first set of racking partners includes:

  • Pegasus Solar: Pegasus is the nation’s fastest growing solar mounting manufacturer.  The company partners with distributors, contractors, installers, and homeowners to improve every aspect of installation. Pegasus SkipRail saves the average crew 5 tons of material, 2 miles of rail, and 1,500 roof penetrations per year. It’s simple, hassle-free, watertight for life.
  • IronRidge: The IronRidge Design Assistant tool ensures you can build a code-compliant and high-performing system regardless of location and environmental forces. Design Assistant will guide you through several project phases — including design, quoting, permitting, and installation. 
  • EcoFasten: EcoFasten, an Enstall Company, has established a reputation for being one of the industry’s leading innovators by providing expert solutions for mounting solar PV on any roof. EcoFasten’s broad portfolio of solar rooftop mounting systems and attachments stems from the direct needs of solar PV installers. EcoFasten takes pride in providing the right solution for every application.
  • SunModo: SunModo is a U.S. company headquartered in Washington that is focused on innovative racking and mounting solutions for professional solar installers. They are energized every day by a desire to make solar installation easier, more reliable, and more affordable. Their commitment to innovation can be seen across their entire product line, which includes more than 30 industry-shaping patents.

The integration of solar and racking design isn’t just a convenience — it’s a necessity. The layout of solar panels is a crucial factor in maximizing energy output and precise racking designs can drive cost and time savings during the installation process. The right solar and racking design will ensure the long-term success of each installation. With Aurora’s ecosystem of racking partner applications, this process becomes effortless. 

Harnessing the power of integrated solar and racking design, installers can:

  • Streamline and scale post-sales workflows
  • Boost accuracy by minimizing data loss and errors
  • Enhance efficiency and consistency across systems
  • Generate a complete bill of materials with solar and racking components

Because several software tools are used throughout the solar lifecycle, seamless integrations are key to unlocking the full potential of solar projects. With Aurora’s ecosystem of racking partner apps, we’re streamlining workflows and minimizing errors — ensuring accuracy from design to implementation. With this unified racking and solar design, solar installers can work with unparalleled efficiency and accuracy.

Join Aurora and all of our racking partners as we revolutionize solar design, driving innovation and sustainability forward. Explore the possibilities and experience the difference for yourself.
