PosiGen is a leading clean energy provider for LMI households looking for lower utility bills and a cleaner environment. Headquartered in New Orleans, LA, with a national presence, they have served over 17,000 customers since inception and have successfully raised capital and expanded to multiple states.
The mission of PosiGen
When customers have a solar retrofit, they reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality and overall public health in their area. With solar, people can spend less on monthly utility bills than what they were spending before having a solar system installed. And in many cases, a customer saves more than 20% of their annual energy spend by having a PosiGen-installed solar system.
How does PosiGen make money?
PosiGen makes money by leasing out rooftop solar panels to customers and offering energy efficiency upgrades to them. This ensures that their customers always control their utility bills and access clean energy. At PosiGen, they also offer free in-home consultations, which help educate their customers about reducing the cost of their utility bills even further through more efficient appliances.
Why solar is important
Solar is an essential renewable energy source because it gives people the ability to have a lower carbon footprint and generate clean electricity. It also helps consumers save money, which can be especially helpful for low-income households. Solar from PosiGen is becoming more affordable, which means that it is possible for people who don’t have access to other forms of renewable energy sources or who don’t want to invest in an expensive upfront cost for solar panels to still benefit from the benefits of solar.
