Raptor Maps raises $5 million for drone intelligence for solar companies



ImpactAlpha, September 1 – Boston-based Raptor Maps is helping rooftop solar companies scout and monitor installation sites by collecting and analyzing aerial data from drones, scoping out issues like tree cover and panel damage.

“Our mission is to build software that enables the solar industry to scale,” said Raptor’s Nikhil Vadhavkar. 

The company’s Series A round was backed by Blue Bear Capital, Data Point Capital and Buoyant Ventures as well as Congruent Ventures, Powerhouse Ventures, Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and Y Combinator. 

Raptor Maps is the first deal for Chicago-based Buoyant Ventures, which backs early-stage digital ventures helping businesses and communities find opportunities for reduced emissions and positive climate impact, Buoyant’s Amy Francetic told Chicago Inno.
