How PosiGen has Made Solar Energy Accessible and Affordable to the Working Class

Hurricane Katrina triggered the establishment of PosiGen Solar energy; a company committed to making homes energy-efficient through solar power. Hurricane Katrina was followed by different recovery programs but were only accessible to the wealthy residents of New Orleans. PosiGen founders saw the gap and helped the low-to-moderate income families by making solar energy accessible and affordable. 


Over the years, PosiGen solar power company has grown to become a leading solar energy company. The client base stands at over 18,000 customers who have acquired solar panels through leasing or purchasing. PosiGen encourages low-to-moderate income families to implement solar power in their homes as a strategy of lowering their energy bills, improving comfort and health, enhancing home value, and achieving a cleaner environment. PosiGen has installed solar panels for over 12,000 U.S. homeowners through the solar leasing program. 


Leasing is preferred for many customers because of the ease of payment, zero credit requirement, and installation and maintenance services. In addition, customers who prefer leasing to purchasing enjoy the benefit of energy efficiency upgrades and system monitoring. On the other hand, homeowners who choose to purchase PosiGen solar panels enjoy cash discounts and flexibility in financing. Just like leasing, purchasing offers installation and system monitoring.

PosiGen oversees all the steps involved in the solar installation, including inspection, permits and approvals, installation and activation. The solar company helps homeowners save money on energy through the net metering system, which involves the installation of a two-directional net meter. Through net metering, homeowners whose solar panels generate more energy are given credits that they can redeem for electricity from the grid. On the other hand, homeowners can get additional energy from the grid if there is a deficit.
