Smart grid solar
for any use

CloudSolar® is a way solar can be used without owning panels or making long term commitments. This technology can be embedded into all types of equipment, appliances, consumer electronics or software.

Our platform uses software to allow any connected device or application to match its energy use to real solar sources.

CloudSolar can also enable unconnected devices, services or processes to match their energy use to real solar sources.

We have already applied the technology to solar for plug-in equipment, phone apps, hotel rooms, music festivals and a music video.

"90% of Americans overwhelmingly prefer solar."

How Does it Work?

The CloudSolar platform allows for easy use of solar wherever electricity is used. We obtain the rights to certified solar production and make these available as SunJoule® solar energy microcredits - discrete increments of available solar. Using SunJoules creates more demand for solar energy, while also helping fund charitable solar projects through our sister nonprofit,


All types of appliances, electronics and equipment for consumer use can be connected to CloudSolar, providing real time solar validation at the point of use. Facility level metering can also be utilized for customers who want to completely cover their electrical footprint. Our developer API also enables nearly any customized application.
