Detroit, November 5, 2013 – Detroit-based GreenLancer.com, a web-based solar energy engineering company, sees sunny skies for its technology after new customer and award wins that have helped the company increase new customer accounts by a factor of 10x since June, 2013.
“All start-ups face the same challenge of getting attention from investors, industry insiders and customers,” said Michael Sharber, GreenLancer.com chief executive officer. “Through our recent success in these competitions, we’ve made huge inroads with current and potential customers who are asking to take a closer look at our products.”
The Michigan Energy Innovation Business Council (Mi-EIBC) just named GreenLancer.com as its “Emerging Company of the Year.”
The previous week, GreenLancer beat out dozens of competitors to earn first prize in the prestigious Start Up Alley Competition at the Solar Power International conference in Chicago.
“The economics of solar energy are changing. As hardware costs have declined, the industry has turned its attention on reducing soft costs. This is the area where our GreenLancer technology excels,” said Sharber.
GreenLancer.com uses its comprehensive “Assembly Line” to allow for quicker, more accurate project documents. GreenLancer’s Assembly Line approach combines state-of-the-art cloud computing that accesses ‘big data’ with a national network of green energy engineering freelancers (or “greenlancers”) who are highly skilled at developing and engineering plans to meet clients’ diverse energy needs. The four-step program typically includes a feasibility study, concept design, financial analysis and permitting. The result of the Assembly Line approach is more accurate, predictable documents faster and at a far lower price than brick and mortar competitors.
Contractors can now order the entire spectrum of documents needed to take a project from feasibility through construction. GreenLancer.com documents can be branded with contractors’ logos and color schemes, so that GreenLancer.com can, in effect, serve as a back office operation for contractors seeking to add solar energy expertise to their services.
GreenLancer serves all sectors of the construction industry. For more information, please visit www.greenlancer.com . For a thorough examination of GreenLancer.com’s new Virtual Engineering Center functionality, visit http://www.greenlancer.com/how-it-works/.
