Solar Companies: Sungevity Solar Named "Innovator of the Year" 2011

Solar Lease Sungevity

Sungevity is one of the nation's fastest growing residential solar companies – in part due to the commitment to the communities they serve and programs such as Solar Lease, which makes solar a reality for many consumers who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it.

Last month Sungevity was voted "Innovator of the Year" by Planet Forward's PBS television special. This special examines energy, climate and sustainability technologies and solutions. A studio audience selected Sungevity over six other finalists for its innovative solar lease and easy, online process of going solar.

"We have built a network of thousands of smart homeowners across the country with our online iQuote process to make solar easy, and our finance innovation to make solar affordable," said Alec Guettel, Sungevity Board Chairman in PRNewswire Press Release. "We are thrilled to be recognized for our innovative solutions and look forward to showing the Planet Forward audience our continuing efforts to improve how our country generates energy."

Their Solar Lease Program was recently also featured on Nation Public Radio's Marketplace. For no money down they design and install a system customized for your home. Then panels are leased to you at a monthly rate that is often equivalent to or lower than your previous electricity bills. On top that, they guarantee a certain amount of solar production (in writing) prior to installing you system. If the system does not meet that amount, they will actually pay YOU the difference. This makes the installation incredibly low-risk to the consumer.

If you are considering solar, but do not have the cash reserves to make it a reality, check out Sungevity's Solar Lease Program.
