New platform for Aust solar installers

OpenSolar, a Sydney-based software company focused on providing solar installers with a free and accurate solar design and sales platform, and Global Sustainable Energy Solutions (GSES), an internationally active Australian renewable energy engineering consultancy and training provider, have announced a new platform integration partnership that offers Australian solar installers a one-stop shop for running a solar business while securing and maintaining Australian Clean Energy Council (CEC) accreditations.

The integration between OpenSolar and GSES marks the launch of the OpenSolar Academy, committed to delivering cutting-edge software tools alongside the necessary knowledge for growing a solar business. The partnership will supply a platform for designing and selling solar systems to customers, as well as providing the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of training courses, covering topics such as solar PV and batteries design and installation; Australian Standards; and balance of system (BOS) equipment.

“Since the election it’s very clear to us that Australia intends to double down on its leadership in rooftop solar,” said Andrew Birch, co-founder and CEO of OpenSolar. “Experienced Australian installers and new people that will undoubtedly now enter the solar workforce will benefit from the leading solar design and sales platform now combined with the leading solar knowledge platform. We’re proud to launch the OpenSolar Academy with GSES.”

“GSES leads Australia in renewable energy engineering, training and consultancy,” said Geoff Stapleton, founder and Managing Director of GSES. “The next logical step for us is to integrate our online, self-paced training with a toolset that Australian installers are using every day to design, sell and install for their customers. The partnership is well positioned to support Australia’s growing renewable energy workforce.”
