ARDMORE, USA: How does a company that started with a total cash investment of $3,500 in 2011 stand on the cusp of being an industry leader with no outside funding just three years later?
For Mike Dershowitz and Kevin Ilsen, it's a remarkable story of finding an unfulfilled need in a growing industry and taking the plunge.
The company they co-founded, ModSolar, is a rising star of the solar industry. Based in the Philadelphia suburbs, it has rapidly grown an international reputation as the innovative leaders in technology solutions for the solar professional.
ModSolar is presenting their platform and services at 2014 Greenbuild Conference and Expo, Wednesday, October 22nd and Thursday, October 23rd at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans., The team from ModSolar will be exhibiting in booth #2176, with demonstrations and presentations throughout the conference.
"ModSolar is changing the way the solar industry works," said Dershowitz. "We are bringing efficiency to previously time-consuming processes, with an all-in-one, comprehensive platform that features our patent-pending, solar panel layout technology, and a growing software offering that now includes financing options and contract generation."
ModSolar's software enables solar providers to produce solar proposals and contracts in less than five minutes, including the placement of panels on an image of the prospect's roof, as well as the calculation of the return on their solar investment. ModSolar develops software that dramatically reduces the "soft costs" involved in solar sales, solar system design, production of high-quality solar proposals, and all the paperwork surrounding solar installations.
