New in Switch

Biweekly updates, with major releases twice a year.

APRIL 2016

Switch Version 4

Multiple new features are included in this launch, all aimed at increasing accuracy, productivity, and providing you with visual tools that compliment your solar sales process. Over the next few weeks we’ll be following up with a series of blog posts, instructional videos, and other content to highlight significant features.

New Apps

Readiness for upcoming net metering changes.

Net energy metering (NEM) has been a critical driver in the growth of residential solar over the past decade. There are some significant changes to NEM in planning or rollout stages in some of the largest solar markets, such as California, Arizona and Hawaii. Genability Switch includes the impact of net metering in our savings calculations, and in Switch V4 we've included enhancements to fully support all the flavors of NEM that are rolling out or being considered.

Improvements in accuracy

Solar Tariffs - Make sure your proposals are accurate with smart solar defaults for tariff switching.

Solar & Energy Efficiency - Bundle solar & energy efficiency offerings in Switch.

Complex Minimum Rates - Your proposals always reflect the most recent tariff changes.

New APIs

New API's - Savings Analysis Watch integrates directly into your quote tool creating real-time flags and alerts when savings analysis results are outside expected ranges.
