The pain of selling solar and the sorrow of people not believing that solar can save them real money.
What it does
SolarMaps automates the solar sales process so that property owners interested in going solar can self qualify and self refer themselves through an open, information rich, and social process. SolarMaps also allows existing solar customers to share the real savings that they have received from their installations and automatically refer more people to their developer, creating an additional revenue stream for them, while they help more people understand the dollars and cents value of solar.
How we built it
As a team!
Challenges we ran into
Accurately generating valid solar values.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating a true demo that communicates the product value.
What we learned
We learned about potential cost and market limitations to the product, but we believe that we found true solutions.
What's next for SolarMaps
Continuing to improve the product and start to generate real market values that will lead to more solar on more roofs.
