Pingo Solar Aiming Comparison Shopping Tool At Solar Consumers
Not sure if you're getting the best price on your new solar power system? A new, Los Angeles startup, Pingo Solar--backed by technology veterans Jerry Slavonia, Kang Ahn, and others--said it is about to launch a new service to provide more transparency to the solar industry. The startup said it will "do what CarsDirect and TrueCar have done for the car industry" to the solar power industry, by letting users calculate their solar savings, create a customized solar setup, and get the "best possible price" on their solar power system. The startup says is is releasing a DIY tool which will simply and automate the purchasing process for solar power. The company has yet to roll out public access to its tool. Slavonia is the former founder of CampusExplorer, and was at Rent.com, and is currently head of Nestigator; Kang Ahn is SVP at RealD, and also was COO of MasterImage.
