Vivint Solar Teams Up With Google In Newly Announced "Project Sunroof"

Vivint Solar teams up with Google to announce Project Sunroof, a new online tool for solar

LEHI, Utah, Aug. 18, 2015 -- Vivint Solar (NYSE: VSLR) announced today that they are teaming up with Google for the newly announced "Project Sunroof."


Project Sunroof is a new online tool created by Google that provides homeowners with custom solar information for their home. The tool uses high-resolution aerial mapping (the same used by Google Earth) to help calculate a roof's solar energy potential, without having to climb up a ladder.

"Vivint Solar teaming up with Google is giving homeowners across the country immediate insight, information and access to rooftop solar power—that's good for everyone," said Greg Butterfield, CEO of Vivint Solar.

The new online tool is being tested in San Francisco Bay Area, Fresno, and greater Boston. The program will tell the homeowner how much sunlight hits their rooftop throughout the year while factoring in roof orientation, shade from trees and nearby buildings, and local weather patterns.

A homeowner can also enter their typical electric bill cost for more customized results. The tool will combine the information to estimate the amount a homeowner could potentially save with solar panels, and it can help connect them with local solar providers, like Vivint Solar.

"Vivint Solar has created an incredible product that's revolutionizing the energy market," said Dwain Kinghorn, Chief Strategy and Innovations Officer at Vivint Solar. "It's simple. It's affordable. And together with Google, we're able to let customers all over the country know that solar power is a lot simpler and more affordable than they might have thought."
