Our Work in the Solar Industry

Create Velocity is currently in the process of creating BuildVelocity, office/field project management software for the U.S. residential solar industry, in close consultation with a number of rooftop contractors. We researched the needs of these companies by communicating with over forty experienced business owners to identify their most pressing needs.

Check out the link to BuildVelocity to learn more about it and request a demo.

We seek to help these solar contractors reach as many people as possible because we believe that the more homeowners and businesses have access to affordable solar power the better our planet will be.

Much of our blog is comprised of the results from our conversations with installers.
