Geostellar, a provider of geomatic technology, has launched an online platform designed to give property owners the ability to analyze the potential value of adding a rooftop solar energy system.
The program will debut in West Virginia, with a nationwide rollout to follow throughout the remainder of the year.
Through 3D simulations and proprietary algorithms, Geostellar instantly assesses the energy generation potential, environmental benefits and financial savings of installing solar energy systems, the company explains.
Interested homeowners and commercial facilities managers can enter their address on geostellar.com, where the property's rooftop is analyzed on factors including shading, slope, orientation, incentives and utility rates.
Property owners can submit the resulting data to receive a free, independent system design with recommendations on equipment configuration, financing and installation options that provide the best financial return and achieve the maximum benefits from state and federal incentives, Geostellar says.
