The MODsolar platform lets you create proposals in less than five minutes: Bring up a satellite image of your cli- ent's rooftop, place the arrays, select the mounting type, compare different pan- els side-by-side and provide detailed computations of incentives and financ- ing options. With a few clicks, you can print out proposals or email them straight to your clients while you're still on the phone.
