Zero Homes

Denver, CO, USA
Posted on Tuesday, October 24, 2023

At Zero, we are changing the paradigm of how homeowners plan and purchase energy upgrades for their homes. We are streamlining today’s time-intensive and often frustrating process with a self-serve interface that delivers actionable intelligence to homeowners so they can get their projects done without all the hassle.

It’s never been more important to help homeowners understand the health of their home, how it impacts the planet, and to make it easier for them to take action. With Zero, homeowners experience a quick, no pressure, and even delightful experience purchasing upgrades for their home. And by partnering with a trusted network of Trade Partners, Zero helps to facilitate installations for heat pumps, solar panels, and electrical upgrades giving homeowners a single point of contact through their project.

Who we are

Zero is on a mission to electrify the world’s homes for healthy and sustainable living. We believe everyone has the right to a healthy home. We’re solving the world’s hardest problem, climate change, and we’re looking to grow our team with similarly minded, passionate change-makers who want to dramatically impact and improve millions of people’s lives.

Born out of previous experience running a general contracting business and designing remote-sensing satellites at NASA, Zero is building the toolkit to digitally assess homes and automate the design of all-electric home energy upgrades. We are building a simple experience for homeowners to enable them to plan, purchase, and schedule installations with local, certified contractors within minutes. 

Zero is based in Denver, CO, venture-backed, and partnered with the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL). Learn more at

You’re eager to help improve the comfort, efficiency, and carbon footprint of homes and learn more about building systems. You have many years of consultative sales experience, dealing directly with customers.
