Greentech Media (GTM), a leading platform in the global energy market, recently recognized Raptor Maps as one of the ‘5 Software Startups Solving the Biggest Challenges in Solar’.

Although leveraging drone technology to inspect solar farms has reduced manual labor, analyzing the accumulated data is still a burdensome time commitment for Asset Management and O&M teams. Raptor Maps tackles this shortcoming by applying its AI software solution to automate the entire post-processing of this data. Now, Asset Management and O&M teams don’t have to spend a minute at a computer to identify and localize PV systems issues from the thousands of collected drone images.

GTM also recognized Pick My Solar, Anderson Optimization, Correlate, and Energetic Insurance as software startups disrupting the solar industry. Pick My Solar addresses complications for homeowners interested in buying solar while Anderson Optimization uses modeling software for site planning. Correlate’s platform serves as an energy management service and Energetic Insurance confronts the financial risks of commercial solar projects with a credit wrap insurance policy solution.


Raptor Maps, along with these software startups, will be attending the Solar Software Summit on April 30th in San Diego, California. Nikhil Vadhavkar, Raptor Maps CEO and co-founder, will be presenting how solar companies around the world are adopting drones for Asset Management and Operations & Maintenance and how AI software can be used to automate the time-intensive data analyzation process.
