Shift simplifies solar for home builders
We help home builders, developers, architects, and contractors meet the demand from shifting consumer desires with simple solar solutions. Energy efficiency has never been more important for home buyers than it is today. Whether you’re building a one-off custom home or an entire subdivision, Shift can help you design and build a complete grid-tied solar solution, with or without battery storage.
Why include solar in your builds?
Consumers are more energy conscious than ever before.
Stand out from other builders with a unique, energy-efficient offering.
Adding solar can help you sell more custom home contracts or spec home builds.
Research has shown that homes that have solar sell for more than homes that do not.
Show environmental stewardship by building homes that are Net Zero or close to it.
What are the benefits to the homeowner?

Pair solar with battery storage to achieve independent backup power.
Installing solar will protect you from future rate yikes.
Upfront Cost Savings
Homeowners can roll the cost of the system into their mortgage.
