New Jersey city partners with PosiGen to bring solar to LMI residents
Paterson is the first New Jersey city to participate in partnership with .’s Solar for All New Jersey program posing, a provider of solar and rooftop energy efficiency for low- to middle-income homeowners.
Solar for All New Jersey is a clean energy initiative available to all New Jersey homeowners through the financial and resilient benefits of rooftop solar. The program provides solar and energy efficiency measures to all homeowners, regardless of income or credit score, and is funded through a public-private partnership that combines a solar lease with energy efficiency upgrades to reduce the energy burden on participating households. The program works with municipalities and non-profit organizations to reach disadvantaged families.
Paterson resident Ronessa Johnson will have a 5-kW array installed by PosiGen that will save electricity costs by $700 in its first year.
“As a homeowner, I’m always looking for ways to manage my resources efficiently,” Johnson said. “Everyone I spoke to at PosiGen has been extremely professional and took the time to make sure I understood everything that goes on at home. I really appreciate them helping me and my community become more energy resilient.”
Solar for All New Jersey supports Mayor Andre Sayegh’s commitment to lower energy costs for lower-income families and those on fixed incomes, while creating quality jobs and making the city more climate resilient.
“Paterson takes sustainability seriously and saves our residents’ money,” Sayegh said. “That’s why we’re proud to partner with PosiGen to reduce energy costs for our constituents.”
Solar for All New Jersey offers 100% of solar viable homeowners a financing solution, through a cashless solar lease, no credit requirement with energy efficiency upgrades. The unique accessibility of this campaign brings solar power and energy efficiency to homeowners who are kept out of traditional programs and who can benefit most from energy savings.
“PosiGen’s mission is to make solar energy available to everyone,” said Tom Neyhart, CEO of PosiGen. “By saving families money on energy bills, they can spend more money in their own community on things like groceries and school supplies. Right now, it’s more important than ever for families to get their energy costs under control. with every solar installation, our customers see savings that are 30 to 80% higher than solar energy alone.”
