Geostellar Brings the Fight on Climate Change and Rising Utility Bills to SXSW by Launching Sustainable Energy Network

Social platform targets homeowners who can profit from solar power

SXSW 2013

AUSTIN, Texas--()--Geostellar today announced the launch at SXSW of a first-of-its-kind online Sustainable Energy Network that helps homeowners slash costs, save money, and fight climate change by reducing carbon pollution – all through the use of advanced home energy simulations, expert guidance and a broad array of solar installation, equipment and financing options. The intuitive social platform connects homeowners together to share expertise and encouragement and to promote the successful deployment of solar energy and energy efficient technologies.

With increasing public concern about the impacts of climate change and rising utility bills nationwide, Geostellar’s network meets a significant and growing challenge for American homeowners. Every home has a unique combination of energy demands, solar potential, utility rates and incentives. Geostellar’s advanced simulation provides an instant, free and independent analysis of each and every home’s potential to take advantage of programs to reduce costs and carbon pollution.

“For many homes, the cleanest source of energy is now also the cheapest,’” said David Levine, founder and CEO of Geostellar. “By reducing costs and removing barriers to entry, Geostellar makes solar energy and energy efficient technologies more competitive across the U.S.”

“Every neighborhood has a solar enthusiast. Geostellar gives that person a way to encourage their neighbors to deal with ever-rising electric bills by switching to solar,” said Jigar Shah, founder of SunEdison and an advisor to Geostellar. “After years of confusion and obscurity around home energy opportunities, Geostellar’s Sustainable Energy Network makes those choices simple, transparent, and accessible.”

Geostellar will launch the Sustainable Energy Network with events throughout the week, kicking off at a POST-PUNK, POST-CARBON party co-hosted with SXSW Eco on Saturday, March 9 at 6pm at the Blackheart Bar in Austin, Texas. The party will feature KCRW Los Angeles DJ Jason Bentley and Senator Flux, the DC Post Punk band fronted by Geostellar CEO David Levine and seen on MTV in the late 80s.

Note to Press: To RSVP for a special press briefing taking place at 5:40pm on Saturday, March 9, before Geostellar’s launch party, or to speak to Geostellar CEO David Levine in advance of SXSW, please email
