“Geostellar makes the solar energy experience illuminating and enlightening, taking the burden of solar energy adoption off the property owner and facilitating a stress-free browsing experience,” said David Levine, Geostellar’s CEO in a press announcement. “We dedicated countless hours to collecting 3D imagery, running solar simulations and analyzing financial models so property owners and managers can easily reach the best solar decisions for their homes and businesses.”

Through the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot program, the “Rooftop Solar Challenge” awarded $12 million in funding to 22 regional teams to improve financing options, reduce barriers, and lower costs for commercial and residential solar energy systems. Geostellar received $500,000 to assist with mapping its home state.

“West Virginia is a longtime leader in domestic energy feedstock. Today, Geostellar is helping the state to continue this proud tradition by diversifying its portfolio to include clean solar energy,” said Gregory Adolfson, Sustainability Officer for the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection.
