WASHINGTON, Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanChoice Energy, a retail renewable energy company providing 100% clean electricity to customers across the country, has launched a 100% Solar retail electricity supply product. The new product allows residents to make the switch to 100% solar energy with no upfront investment, setup fees or installation. The new 100% solar product means that people can go solar quickly, simply and affordably even if they don't own a roof suitable for solar panel installation. The new service will initially be available to residents of Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C.
"Solar is the most popular way to get energy in America, but for too long too many people have been blocked from going solar. More than a hundred million households can't get rooftop solar because they don't own their own home, or they live in an apartment or condo, or their roof has too much shade," said Tom Matzzie, Founder and CEO of CleanChoice Energy. "With CleanChoice Energy's 100% Solar product, these people can go solar while supporting solar jobs in America and helping reduce unhealthy pollution."
CleanChoice Energy makes it easy for customers to have a positive environmental impact. As one of the first licensed retail energy providers offering only 100 percent renewable energy products to American homes and businesses, CleanChoice Energy has made it possible for people to choose clean energy as-a-service instead of as a home construction project. Initially, all CleanChoice 100% Solar customers will be receiving their solar from solar farms in North Carolina. CleanChoice expects each new 100% Solar customer to avoid more than 10,000 pounds of carbon pollution per year.
CleanChoice Energy has grown quickly since its customer-facing launch in 2013 to become one of the largest direct-to-consumer renewable retail energy providers in the United States, servicing eight states and the District of Columbia. The more than one billion kWh provided to CleanChoice Energy customers has avoided more than 700,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
