Thank you for exploring CitiGreen Inc. I am confident you will be impressed with our incredible growth, portfolio of work, and customers; but first, I’d like to share with you why CitiGreen began in the first place.
Our world is changing and evolving. Over the last hundred years, energy in the form of electricity has been sent around our lives to power industry, office buildings and our homes. We have come to depend on it and we simply cannot live without it.
When the energy crisis hit California in 2001, I tried to cut energy costs for potential commercial customers. Within a few months, solar PV became the obvious choice, not only to cut costs, but to virtually eliminate them. As a pioneer in commercial solar, or distributed generation, we had to develop our own racking systems, monitoring systems, design and proposal software, as well as build an understanding of what we were dealing with and how we wanted to be a part of it.
Early on in the process, back when solar was four times more expensive than it is now, we started financing projects as a necessary way of getting them built. This led to Power Purchase Agreements, and found us using PPA’s not only to help finance municipals and schools, but private businesses as well.
Today we are showing our customers less than a 3 year payback on their solar systems, and no money down financing. There are two trend lines that don’t seem to be changing in the future; the price of electricity keeps going up and the price of solar keeps going down. As the government incentives go away, price drops keep the paybacks in line.
CitiGreen is keeping in the forefront of solar for distributed generation because we are helping agencies and private companies save money on their electricity. In the process we are helping to save the environment. It is a great industry to be a part of, and a great legacy to leave for our future generations.
Thank you for your interest in CitiGreen Inc. We look forward to working with you in the future.
