We are creating a platform that brings together home owners, contractors, and investors to speed up the solar panel deployment in NYC and beyond. We use a GroupOn model to pool roofs and package it as a solar-backed security to everyday investors. We do not commit our own capital to the deals, thereby freeing us to focus entirely on market making.
As homeowners we do not have the resources to put solar on our roofs; contractors know the need for a steady stream of projects; and investors seek high risk-adjusted yields. By bringing all interested parties together, we hope to create solar-based jobs in NYC and help make NYC greener.
