About the Company: Enpal was founded in 2017 by Mario Kohle and co-founders Jochen Ziervogel and Viktor Wingert. Enpal is a solar startup that leverages AI for provisioning and installing solar services and offers a subscription-style model for homeowners to pay for it. The AI-based algorithm lets users click pictures of their roofs and uses computer vision and other techniques to determine the size and positioning of the installation required. With this process, the provisioning part is done remotely, and technicians only visit the house for installation. Enpal has nearly 30,000 customers in Germany to date.
