Solar shopping is broken

What’s broken

A year after our first venture, we again studied the solar industry and came to the realization that the solar buying experience for home owners had not improved, and in many ways, was even more confusing.
We identified 3 main areas of concern that we knew we could fix:

Pushy Sales Tactics

Lack of Transparency

Poor Customer Experience
