SunMath helped me figure out if installing solar on my house made sense. I'd seen the information from an installer and from other online resources, but having a 3rd party help me with the numbers made all the difference. Thanks!

SunMath (SunMath.com), a leading developer of innovative, web-based tools for the solar industry has recently launched it’s newest software tool, Solar Calculator. This free tool uses proprietary incentive and utility rate databases to construct highly detailed, unbiased financial analyses. Years of development have gone into making a product that is both robust and accurate, but also easy to navigate and understand.
Existing Solar Financial Tools
SunMath aims to re-define how people determine if solar makes financial sense for them. Currently, homeowners and businesses have to rely on either (1) solar calculators from lead generation services, or (2) analysis provided by solar installers. These solutions are inherently flawed.
Solar calculators provided by lead-generation services are biased because their revenue comes from providing leads to solar installers. These companies are incentivized to make solar look as attractive as possible so visitors submit their personal information. Often, solar installers provide their own financial analysis to their customers. Unfortunately, this is no different from a homebuilder doing the final home inspection for a house they just built. Even honest, well-intentioned solar installers often have engineering backgrounds and fail to run the numbers accurately.
As a completely independent 3rd party, SunMath never accepts finder’s fees or money for leads. Our only source of revenue is from advertising and software. Additionally, our background is in finance and math, so users can trust that our solar calculator produces accurate reports using conservative estimates and robust data.
