Rooftop solar is unique in that, while the panels are considered a commodity, though there is significant variation even there, the rest of the installation is personalized. The provider must size the system for each individual roof and match it to the customer’s energy usage.
However, since it isn’t rocket science, one would expect the cost per watt installed to be within a fairly narrow range for similar installations. And one would be mistaken. Finally, someone has created a system that does the exact calculation. Nexergy, which debuted last month, intends to be the Expedia of solar, as well as other green technologies like battery storage, smart grid, and blockchain-energy-marketplace.
You add your property to Nexergy, enter your average electricity bill, and some basic information about your priorities, and it gives you a complete analysis of usable sunshine per year, roof space, and potential expenses and savings. Mahmudul Hasan, the CEO and Founder of Nexergy, is the type of person who delights economists. For economists, market information is vital: the more information a market possesses, the more efficient it becomes. And Nexergy’s sole aim is to deliver marketing information and empower solar and battery storage users.
Mr. Hasan informed, Nexergy is collaborating with some of the top IT and energy specialists to put the Nexergy’s vision into life and they are using a variety of cutting-edge technologies such as geospatial analytics, advanced visualization, big data, artificial intelligence, APIs, integrated databases, Google Map and 3d modeling, Federal and state resources to generate a real-time and near-accurate individualized analysis. They’re also collaborating with a blockchain ledger technology to make peer-to-peer transactions. According to Mr. Hasan, they want to work with forward-thinking partners to develop the correct business models so that they can provide the services that consumers will demand in the distributed energy future.
Mr. Hasan, the face behind the vision, is a tech-savvy energy specialist with an outstanding background in energy and environmental law, having spent the past seven years researching, learning, and working in the field. Mr. Hasan claims to have a plan to revolutionize the way people engage with and control their energy usage, as well as to incorporate a variety of features into the current Nexergy system, allowing people to save more and contribute to a cleaner future.
Not only will this benefit homeowners, but it will also speed the day when solar electricity and fossil fuels reach parity. Because the panels are becoming more affordable and efficient installation technologies are lowering labor costs, the sales and marketing costs are becoming increasingly significant. Clean energy is expected to become an important part of the energy matrix in near future. The Nexergy is one of the first to implement this kind of vision and as people search for an accurate and individualized analysis for reliable and environmentally responsible sources of energy, localized and individualized analysis by Nexergy provide an exciting prospect.
