In order to realize the highest value from residential solar installations, three uptake barriers had to be overcome by Sungevity, an innovative Solar home specialist. The first was prohibitive up-front costs, the second - the "hassle factor" associated with system design/installation and the finally - public mistrust of solar power's true costs. 

According to Aol Energy, how they went about solving this problem is a great example of the benefits of Cloud computing can be successfully blended with a business strategy that directly contributes to consumer benefit. First, Sungevity helped reduce upfront costs by simply providing customers with an option to lease a solar system with easy financing. Next, they adopted a remote solar design tool that uses Google Earth and Microsoft Bing technology to provide customers quotes for installations without the need to conduct a physical site visit.

Two simple steps, but the end result? -  A much more streamlined and efficient system, with significant cost savings as well as a better experience for the Sungevity's customers in general.
