    About Glint Solar

    The climate crisis is a behemoth of a challenge and the outlook often seems bleak. However, we believe there are many reasons to be hopeful as we think technology can play an integral role.

    Glint Solar was founded in 2020 with the mission of accelerating the adoption of solar energy across the globe. While several great solar software companies already existed, we saw an urgent need to speed up site origination and ensuring better insight from a project’s inception.

    Fast forward to today and we are working with both large global and small local solar developers, enabling them to quicker build their greenfield project pipelines through seamless collaboration. Technologies like satellite data and cloud computing mean that we’re able to deliver high precision insight into a user-friendly software for the development team.

    We’re proud to every day empower the companies that are building solar PV in record speed to mitigate climate change.
