About Us

Amy and Brian Looking good.jpeg

How Can We Have the Largest and Most Immediate Impact?

This is the question we asked ourselves that led to the inception of Starling and Roofing for Solar. Our 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, we enable more efficient scaling of rooftop solar.

Our Team

We are motivated to change roofing, solar, and the world for the better.
