Cate Blanchett Investing In California Solar Startup Sungevity

Actress Cate Blanchett has been listed as a primary investor in a new solar startup out of California called Sungevity. This is a pretty slick idea — with satellite-imaging software that zooms in on your home, calculates the roof’s dimensions — the pitch and azimuth — selects appropriately sized solar arrays, and shows what they will look like installed — while computing your return on investment. Cool, right?

But it gets better. Once you place your order, a pre-packaged solar array is sent to your home, and an installation crew is dispatched. In the meantime, a database keeps track of all the necessary permits, fills them out, and send them to you for a signature. Additionally, the installation crew is sent all the local regulations governing solar arrays. Can you say finger-lickin’ easy?

The guy behind the concept is longtime Australian activist Danny Kennedy — which makes it easy to connect-the-dots to Blanchett’s involvement. Of course, the actress herself is one of the largest vocal supporters of climate change initiatives in Australia. She’s also recently placed the final touches on her new green home outside of Sydney — and is also following through with plans to add green elements to the Sydney Theatre Company.

If you live in California, check out the Sungevity website (which launches today!), pop in your address, and take a look at your solar future.

[UPDATE] Ok, while the site may broadly say “California”, I just tried an address in Malibu with no success. Apparently, those of you living in San Fran will have the best luck.
