New Features Coming This Fall

At RE+ 2023 in Las Vegas, Enact presented new Enact for Installers features to solar professionals from around the world. The Enact software platform is transforming how solar and storage projects are designed, deployed and managed.

Since 2014, Enact has progressively increased the capabilities of our solar and storage platform. Our newest features better enable installers to design, price, sell and track projects — seriously improving the ease of workflow for your team.

Auto-detect roof height, pitch & azimuth

Enact for Installers includes an auto-detect tool that determines roof height, roof pitch (or slope) and the solar azimuth angle. Our smart solar platform can help you save time and create systems faster with this automatic feature.

On screen summary

As you design a custom solar design for your customers, Enact’s platform displays an on screen summary with critical generation figures. Enact for Installers automatically updates this summary and it is always displayed on your screen for your convenience.

Summarized figures include the kWp size, kWh generation, percentage offset and kWh storage. This information can speed up the process and help you understand your system design’s capabilities.

Auto-detect chimney height & tree height

Our auto-detect tool can accurately determine the height of chimneys and trees so you can design the right system for your customer. Automatically detecting the height of potential obstacles can save time and let you design systems in minutes

Accurate shading

Enact for Installers helps solar professionals design systems that meet customer needs. Our solar platform includes an accurate shading tool that works across many geolocations. Don’t let unexpected shading deter from your customer’s system and use Enact.

Storage modeling

Energy storage naturally goes with solar energy. Storage batteries help homeowners get the most out of their solar investment and provide additional benefits. Enact for Installers does more than solar and helps design systems with battery storage. Installers can use our modeling feature with self-consumption and time-based discharge modes.

Did you know the solar-plus-storage payback period in California is less than solar-only systems due to NEM 3.0?

Extensive data visualization

Our solar software empowers installers and can show your customers the benefits of solar. Our data visualization tools can display the source of consumption, load analysis, energy offset by solar, the cost of doing nothing, the amount of utility bills offset by going solar and the changes in average monthly bills. Improve your customer satisfaction and use real life data to show how your customers are making a difference.

Finance integration

Enact for Installers combines solar design, sales and finance into one platform. Installers can get loan offers, payment estimates and receive loan status updates through GoodLeap on the Enact platform. Enact is more than a design tool and can help you across the solar sales journey.

Manage documents with DocuSign

Enact for Installers is more than a solar design and sales platform, our software generates proposals and uses DocuSign to manage important documents. Generate customer ready proposals that can be signed and managed online.

Understand California’s residential solar market

Enact carefully conducted a consumer insights survey of California solar homeowners in 2022. Our research offers solar installers essential insights into the solar, storage and monitoring experiences and behaviors of consumers. The survey was created by our in-house marketing team and administered online to over 480 participants.

California is still America’s largest residential solar market by installations. Understanding California consumers is essential for solar and storage businesses trying to increase sales, improve customer experience or expand in the Golden State. Our report outlines key behaviors, attitudes, experiences and insights for solar and storage sales and installation professionals.

A key insight found higher-cost systems, worth over $25,000, are more likely to require maintenance. Another insight reported higher income participants expressed increased interest in solar monitoring apps — like Enact Home — and desired frequent notifications. While “saving money” is a primary motivation for solar consumers, higher-income participants also considered grid independence and environmental factors. Lastly, Enact found satisfaction with installers and monitoring apps was high and over 80% of respondents would refer others to their installer for financial incentives.
