We’ve created the SolShare, the world’s only hardware for connecting rooftop solar to apartments.

We believe everyone should have the power to reduce their electricity bill and carbon footprint. With the SolShare, that’s possible.

For too long rooftop solar has been reserved for people that live in their own detached house, leaving those in apartment buildings missing out.

The SolShare is the world’s only hardware
that can connect multiple apartments to a
shared rooftop solar system.

This proven technology enables a
single rooftop solar system to be optimally
shared by everyone in the building.

Achieve your sustainability goals while reducing the energy bills for each resident with a SolShare - The simple and affordable solution to apartment solar.

About the SolShare

Optimised Solar Delivery to the Apartments
The SolShare monitors the energy demand of every apartment in the building and automatically delivers the solar energy to where it’s going to be used.

By delivering the solar to the apartments that are using energy at that specific moment in time, the solar energy is consumed within the building rather than being exported to the grid.

The optimised solar delivery results in the highest possible savings and biggest carbon reduction for every apartment in the building. The SolShare also makes sure everything is fair, by making sure that the same quantity of solar is delivered to every apartment over the course of each month.

Simplicity in the Solution
The beauty of the SolShare is that it’s simple.

The SolShare is installed alongside traditional electricity metering infrastructure at the apartment building’s main switchboard. Apartment access is not required and residents can still choose whichever retailer they like for their grid energy. There’s no requirement for residents to sign up to anything or trade solar via blockchain or anything complicated like that.

Put simply, the residents won’t even notice that a SolShare system’s been installed – apart from when they see their significantly reduced electricity bill!

It’s this simplicity that has made the SolShare the go-to choice for Social Housing Providers and Property Developers.

Achieve your Sustainability Goals
For too long, the only solution to apartment solar was to connect it to the landlord supply. This often results in the solar being wasted, as the excess can’t be used by the apartments and is simply exported to the grid.

The SolShare provides you with the opportunity to connect every apartment in the building as well as the landlord supply to a shared rooftop solar system.

This is vital for achieving sustainability targets. As each apartment is connected directly to solar the entire building gains a greater sustainability rating.

Each year, a typical SolShare will

35 MWh
produce 35 MWh of electricity

35 – 40 %
reduce grid-energy use by 35 – 40 %

28 tonnes
stop 28 tonnes of CO2 emissions
