How Can We Have the Largest and Most Immediate Impact?

This is the question founders Amy and Brian Atchley asked themselves that led to the inception of Starling and Roofing for Solar. Their drive was to create a roof that is the obvious choice for homeowners, and which uses solar to pay for itself. By incorporating solar with a better roof they will enable scaling of rooftop solar.
