Installer Down Time

When installing solar it would be great if an installer could optimize the route and location of their installer teams. There is not an application that can take the day's installs and available teams and plot the most efficient way to handle the work. Such an app would reduce fuel and payroll costs. The goal would be to eliminate down time.


Down time also occurs during the winter months. It might be possible to fill available time slots with quick maintenance jobs like cleaning panels or replacing broken panels.


Down time also occurs when crews are forced to wait for a master electrician or other experts to complete a step in the process. Optimizing the route and planing so that all steps are completed just in time would be a major accomplishment.
