“This successful raise is a validation of what Omnidian has accomplished over the past four years. Residential and commercial solar are moving into mainstream adoption and with that comes demand for a higher level of service and assurance that a customer’s system is operating as expected,” said Mark Liffmann, founder and CEO of Omnidian.

“Our new capital partners share our vision of providing solar energy customers with a lower cost of ownership, less risk and a transformational customer experience. The capital will also enable expansion into new asset classes including energy storage, EV charging and HVAC.”

“Omnidian is a vital technology for the energy transition making the adoption of distributed energy resources like solar easier for homeowners and businesses,” said Raj Atluru, Managing Director, Activate Capital. “The renewables industry has spent the last two decades investing trillions of dollars into clean energy generation. Omnidian’s intelligent asset management platform treats these IoT connected assets as critical infrastructure, ensuring the rapid adoption of renewable generation and the resiliency of our grid,” added Eric Meyer, Vice President.

The new capital comes at a time of rapid growth for Omnidian, said the company. In addition to its performance plans for solar, the firm has launched a similar service for energy storage, both at the residential and C&I level. In the future, Omnidian’s machine learning software will monitor other IoT sensored energy products, added the firm.
