Speaking this week at The White House Energy Datapalooza, Genability’s CEO Jason Riley announced the launch of the Company’s “Open Solar Savings” initiative.

“Based on the latest NREL numbers, approximately 64% of the current cost of a residential solar PV system is so-called soft costs, which includes customer acquisition, permitting, financing and all non-hardware related expenses,” said Jason Riley. “The goal of Open Solar Savings is to provide the data that homeowners, solar educators, installers, developers and financiers need to help drive down these costs and contribute to the SunShot goal of $1/W by 2020.” Along with an API, Genability will be building a showcase solar savings website for homeowners.
"By leveraging freely available government data and tools, entrepreneurs and innovators are helping to build the clean energy economy," said Todd Park, U.S. Chief Technology Officer and Assistant to the President. "Innovations like those featured today at the Energy Datapalooza can help Americans conserve energy, save money, and advance a safer and cleaner future."
