Zero Homes

Gunnison founded Zero, a home-electrification marketplace that simplifies deployments for single-family homes. He previously developed CubeSat laser communication terminals at NASA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and ran a general contracting business.

At West Gate, Gunnison is leveraging his residential market expertise to develop a platform to change how solutions are delivered and accelerate deployments while building out his team.

Critical Need

High-quality engineering—or "sizing"—of home energy systems is time consuming, expensive, and largely inaccessible to most homeowners. Without a solution, meaningful and needed projects remain out of reach for most homeowners.

Potential Impact

Zero Homes' software reduces the time required to get project quotes by 90%, project costs by 10%, and makes this capability accessible to everyone. Zero Homes unlocks access to the data needed to deliver high-quality engineering and automate the engineering process to reduce cost.

Innovation and Advantages

  • Zero Homes' technology delivers customers a simple, compelling value proposition that solves their loudest pain points via a highly intelligent service at one-tenth the cost and time investment than existing leading solutions.
  • It is accessible by everyone and highly scalable—critical features needed for widespread adoption.
  • Unlike in-person home visits, Zero Homes' technology allows the company to get an accurate snapshot of a home digitally, which enables Zero Homes to provide electrification plans and quotes for any home in the country.
  • Zero Homes' software leverages this data to instantly build accurate quotes to homeowners and deliver them with national reach.
