Solar Site Design is surging towards more success as the Energy Mentor Network startup announced 75 construction companies are now subscribed to its Commercial Marketplace platform.
Solar Site Design is headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. The company is a collaborative, cloud-based marketplace platform that connects sales-ready commercial and industrial solar projects to top solar construction companies to drive down customer acquisition costs.
“Our marketplace was launched last year during Solar Power International, so this demonstrates the tremendous growth we have acquired since then,” said Jason Loyet, Founder.
Loyet elaborated that his company has an even bigger milestone in mind.
“Our goal is to standardize ‘behind the meter’ commercial solar origination and sign 150 construction companies to join Solar Site Design’s marketplace by the end of this year,” said Loyet.
Solar Site Design will exhibit this year at Solar Power International in Las Vegas on September 10 and will announce a major partnership with a global Fortune 500 solar panel manufacturer that Loyet believes will help his company reach and exceed that goal.
“Our Commercial Marketplace Platform is experiencing tremendous traction, and is servicing commercial and industrial properties nationwide,” said Loyet. “Together with our trusted channel agents, we provide commercial property owners with preliminary engineering and financial modeling and educate them on the costs and benefits of installing solar.”
“As soon as the owners choose to install solar, we connect them with (up to) five competitive construction quotes. Our contractors have real-time access into the Marketplace, where they can see when the owner is ready to move forward. And, they don’t have to pay for the project up front; they only pay when the project is won. It’s a win-win for everyone: building owners lean on their trusted advisor to help them receive competitive pricing and the customer acquisition costs are driven down for the installer,” said Loyet.
Loyet went on to say some of the largest solar construction companies in the Southeast have already joined Solar Site Design’s commercial marketplace. Solar Site Design won the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Catalyst award for its innovation on driving down cost of solar through their innovative software platform.
