Flash Forward Ventures leads $2 million investment as Geostellar launches 0.5 meter resolution 3D solar power rooftop model of major metropolitan areas
Santa Clara, CA. (April 20, 2011) – Geostellar, which applies big-data geomatics to model worldwide solar resources, infrastructure, economics and policy; today announced at Where 2.0 financial backing from Flash Forward Ventures (FFV) to transform the way solar power projects are identified, sited, designed, financed and marketed worldwide.
Geostellar’s platform provides a mapping, search, and analytics system allowing subscribers to compute precise solar energy potential at ground and rooftop project sites by using algorithms that take into account latitude, atmosphere, slope, shadow, property ownership, utility rates, transmission access and other factors. Geostellar finds locations that give the greatest returns for the lowest cost to producers and consumers of alternative energy.

Geostellar Creates First Solar Energy Computation Platform
Enables energy firms to leverage Big-data, Geomatics, 3D animation, for universal solar power generation maps
WASHINGTON, DC (November 30, 2010) – Geostellar, which provides micro-local resource, capacity and market intelligence for sustainable energy producers around the world, today unveiled the first complete solar energy simulation platform for residential-, commercial- and utility-scale power generation.
The platform – which will be used by energy companies to determine solar power generation potential at any location — employs highly refined algorithms to model every meter of entire cities, counties, states, countries, and continents for rooftop and ground-based energy production opportunities.
