How does Geostellar work?
Homeowners enter an address into Geostellar’s patented solar calculator to receive an instant StellarScore™, which reveals the property’s solar power potential, how much money would be saved in electricity bills, and how much carbon pollution averted. The StellarScore™ is a standardized score that communicates a lot of information to everyone in the solar industry. Energy users are then empowered to select from a list of pre-approved local installers, financiers and equipment providers who can receive that property score and send quotes. Find more info on the StellarScore™ here.
Geostellar makes rocket science look easy, using Big-Data Geomatics to crunch huge data sets gathered from multiple sources through its proprietary predictive algorithms to produce the StellarScore™. It’s all done via remote sensing, which means nobody comes to your house; we do it all online. Those data sets include solar irradiance, which is the amount of sun energy that hits a property; remote mapping of the address and the slope and azimuth of the roof; vegetation data such as LiDAR and GeoEye which can reveal when the property is in shade; plus financing incentives available from federal, state and county sources, and much, much more. To learn more, see our white paper on Big Data Geomatics.
Geostellar helps you make smart energy decisions about your property. We are also the first online service to map this data on a national and eventually global scale – bringing this information to the entire value chain, including energy users, installers, project developers, equipment companies and financiers.
