ModSun Solar Cost Calculator

Modernize has announced the launch of ModSun, an easy-to-use solar panel cost calculator for homeowners.

ModSun is powered by the only solar resource with nationwide Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) data, it accurately maps each square meter of a rooftop’s size, slope, orientation and average sunlight intensity. According to the company ModSun can instantly provides the homeowner with a 3D visualization of their rooftop’s solar energy potential and a personalized, user-friendly cost assessment for offsetting up to 100 percent of their home’s electricity usage.

ModSun calculates the output potential of a solar panel system and its total cost to the homeowner, accounting for current local electric rates, recommended system size based on energy usage and weather patterns, specific available federal and state incentives and detailed purchasing or financing options.

With ModSun, we sought to truly understand an everyday homeowner’s thought process about going solar and use that insight to design a simple tool that answers their questions in a way that’s upfront and easy to understand,” said Jason Polka, CEO of Modernize. He further added “There are so many variables and data points involved in calculating an individual home’s physical and economic potential for solar energy that presenting all this information can be intimidating to homeowners. ModSun empowers homeowners by focusing on helping them understand the most important information and guiding them down a path that’s best for their needs.”
