ImpactAlpha, November 30 — The San Francisco-based software startup helps solar installers plan installations remotely. Usage has increased amid COVID, as solar companies have been forced to do more of their pre-planning remotely.

Aurora Solar’s Samuel Adeyemo said the company’s aim is to “help the industry thrive in this new environment.” ICONIQ led Aurora’s Series B round. Existing investors Energize Ventures, Fifth Wall and Pear VC also participated. 

In April, Acumen backed Solaris, which makes software that manages billing and customer engagement for solar companies in emerging markets.
