MISSION

Our mission is to accelerate the adoption of solar energy globally by automating the design
and engineering for large scale solar projects and using our proprietary algorithms to obtain
the lowest cost of electricity.

Our online platform was used in over 3GW* of solar PV projects by the largest global solar
power developers, contractors and investors across four continents.
* Equivalent to powering over 600,000 US homes.

MARKET
Traditional solar design and engineering is inefficient. HSTInside uses algorithms and
machine learning to achieve better, faster results at lower costs.

Cost Estimate

*HSTInside algorithms search for local maxima through a large set of potential combinations without having to run
each potential combination. There are over 1 billion potential designs for each PV site and our platform takes into
account panels, inverters, tilt, azimuth, row spacing, and many other dimensions of optimization.
