Powerful tool with some serious weaknesses

Reviewed 2 years ago

Solargraf is an invaluable tool to present the value of solar to our customers on a daily basis. It houses our install contract language in the terms & conditions (this feature too, could use strengthening) so we have them sign electronically and we're off to the races. I can recommend this tool wholeheartedly because of all the quality it does possess. However, we have started looking at alternatives because there are just too many issues with our contracting process for many lenders to overcome.

Pros

Easy to use design tool. Excellent sales proposal for presentation to customer. I like the electronic signature feature, the drop-down financing options, and the flow of information from loan options to project timeline. The expandable detail is great too. Customers feel like they can dive in but they have all the necessary information at their fingertips. Panel rotations, and other design updates over last 12 months are terrific.

Cons

Designers feel like hidden features, buried features, or design quirks are acceptable - rather than deliberate UI systems. Example, we work with 9 lenders. We've entered all those details into Solargraf for the entire sales team to work with but it creates 36 financing options for the customer to choose from - WAY TOO MANY! I asked for an easy way to switch those options on/off and was told that it...

Has Potential But Don't Bother with Shading/Production Feature

Reviewed a month ago

I love Solargraf and using it, but they are failing me when it comes to calculating shade and production.

Pros

It is easy to make and send proposals to homeowners. The proposals look nice. I genuinely enjoy using Solargraf.

Cons

HOWEVER the shading software is absolute garbage. It is entirely inaccurate. Solargraf continually passes blame to PV Watts who they get outdated and inaccurate production values from. There is no feature to customize shading/production to each individual site. All you get is a stupid % field where you enter in the "shading percentage" whatever that is. It is subject to user error. "25% shading" can...

DO NOT BUY

Reviewed 8 months ago

There are so many better products out there and especially when it comes to engineering. They cannot figure out how to design a Solar Ark hybrid inverter with battery back up. It should be simple but 4 revisions later they still have gotten it wrong. I cancelled my service today and am regretting not doing it 6 months ago. Do yourself and your company a favor and stay clear of this flawed and antiquated company.

Pros

Its easy to use and train you employees to use. Too bad the company is run horribly.

Cons

The calculations are way off. We use SunPower Eddie to compare and Solargraf was always 10%-20% off. The permit pack is ridiculous. Out of the 75-100 purchased more than half needed revisions. There is no way to contact the design team except through the app which takes days to get a reply.

Great program, fast and easy for our sales reps

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have been a happy user, just need the duplicate bid feature to be built into the software.

Pros

The software is the easiest that our team has ever used. The design tool is very easy to use and has proven to be accurate from the air many times.

Cons

The payments sometimes don't line up exactly. The worst part is that you NEED TO BE ABLE TO CREATE MULTIPLE QUOTES FOR THE SAME CUSTOMER. THERE SHOULD BE A "DUPLICATE THE BID" FEATURE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO KEEP ALL THE BASIC INFO THE SAME, BUT JSUT CHANGE THE PANELS AND THE PRICING. THIS IS THE WORST PART OF THE PROGRAM BY FAR!

Criminals (BEWARE) not worth on the back end

Reviewed 6 months ago

Terrible considering they continue to charge my account after cancellation. Beware of these criminals

Pros

The software was truly decent at proposals and user friendly.

Cons

The utility rates are tough in Texas and their software was unable to compute savings on the proposal that is why we canceled our subscription. BUT BEWARE they are thieves and continue to charge you even after cancelation.
