PosiGen’s Mission to Help Underserved Communities With Solar Energy

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the federal government created 16 programs to help New Orleans residents upgrade and rebuild their homes. The problem was that only high-income people could qualify for the programs. That left lower-and-middle-income people with a desire to improve their homes but no way to do that. Then, the founders of PosiGen came up with an idea to allow these residents to put solar power in their homes at a price they could afford. Instead of being money hungry like many large corporations, the founders based their company on four business principles that still guide it today. 

 

Make a Positive Impact on Those They Serve 

The company has grown to at least five different states since 2005, but in each case, anyone associated with the company still wants to make a positive impact on those they serve. When people save money on their utilities, they can use those savings to make a better way for themselves and their communities. Therefore, PosiGen promises to never sell solar power to someone who will not benefit from it. 

 

Provide Job Opportunities 

Another principle that has always guided this company is to work with people who live in the communities that the company serves. Over 65% of PosiGen’s employees are people of color or women. 

 

Support Growth in Low-income Communities 

Many residents of low-income communities have outstanding ideas of what needs to be changed to help their communities thrive. In the past, the problem was that they often lacked the funds to implement those ideas but PosiGen found a solution. When we save people money on high utility bills by converting them to solar energy, they can use those funds to implement their ideas, making their communities a better place for everyone. 

 

Make an Environmental Impact 

Each customer that we can convert to solar energy helps protect the world a little bit. Added together, that impact becomes massive. Join us in building a better tomorrow by contacting PosiGen about their solar power today.
