Solar Captus brings solar to the masses

Solar Captus believes in solar on every roof! Weʼve seen the early adopters, but now itʼs time for the masses. Bringing solar to the next generation solar customers is hard, but generates impact and accelerates change. Thatʼs why weʼre building the worldʼs first database of rooftop solar and make everyone part of the solar revolution.

Prices of solar have plummeted and make a people-powered energy system soon reality. This opportunity only grows bigger with affordable energy storage and smart software, both changing the way we trade, sell and monitor our energy. To make this transition happen, we have to convince the masses of the unique potential they have to lower energy bills by joining the solar revolution!

Our data-driven software creates an optimal customer experience thatʼs engaging, personal and easy-to-understand. We built a radically different approach to sell solar using machine learning and state of the art computer vision on satellite imagery, LIDAR and customer intelligence. Itʼs the new way for any company to make solar energy available to the masses, lower the customer acquisition costs and build longterm relationships that will last for the future.
