Have you ever wondered why more homeowners aren’t going green?

This episode of the Ask AI podcast features an interview with Veronica Malinski, the co-founder of Aerialytic.

Aerialytic is a Toronto startup (and Next Canada program graduate) that’s one of only a handful of companies in Canada working at the crossroads of AI and cleantech.

Listen how Aerialytic is using artificial intelligence to provide homeowners with an instant solar design that clearly shows the financial and environmental returns from going solar.

Aerialytic is also addressing the aesthetic barrier that homeowners face by providing a visual representation of their home with solar panels using augmented reality technology.

This is made-in-Canada technology that’s helping to solve an issue of true global importance.
