Gridpar is looking to transform how alternative energy products are financed, managed, and marketed. Our Gridpar.js™ solar calculator widget educates homeowners about solar on installers', lenders', and digital publishers' websites. Our vision is to acquire residential solar PV projects at $500 per project, the customer acquisition cost level sought by the Department of Energy's 2020 SunShot program.


Detroit Headquarters

Gridpar is headquartered in Detroit, Michigan as a member of the Bizdom Detroit startup accelerator class of 2013. Gridpar raised $25,000 of seed funding from Bizdom Detroit to begin validating our products.
