Vikram Aggarwal is the founder and CEO of EnergySage, the online solar marketplace. EnergySage simplifies the process of researching and shopping for solar, making the experience as easy as booking a flight online by introducing price transparency across suppliers and enabling apples-to-apples comparisons of solar systems, pre-screened installers and financing options, EnergySage is demystifying prices and shortening the buyer’s information-gathering phase. As a result, consumers are empowered to make quicker, more informed purchasing decisions about solar panels that specifically meet their individual needs, while also saving as much as 20% on the cost of their systems. Vikram founded EnergySage after more than fifteen years with a major global financial services leader, specializing in private equity investing and strategy consulting – because he recognized that solar panels were not only great for the environment, but also a low volatility, low risk financial product that could enable businesses and homeowners to save on their monthly energy bills as well as generate income over time. Vikram holds master’s degree in business administration and is a CFA charter holder.
