“This is not just an historic achievement for this young company,” said Thomas Neyhart, CEO of PosiGen. “It is a testament to what a positive business model can do in a short period of time. It also speaks clearly to anyone willing to listen that people want choices in their electricity providers."

From its launch in 2011, the company has grown at an exponential rate. In addition to its growing number of customers, PosiGen positioned itself financially and geographically for national expansion. Just last month, the company announced that Goldman Sachs agreed to $40 million in financing, while another leading Wall Street bank agreed to finance 2,000 additional residential systems. PosiGen also recently expanded into Connecticut and New York and expects to enter two additional states by the end of 2015.
