Residential Solar Energy

Residential Solar Energy ( Solar Thermal Magazine) OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 19, 2014.  Sungevity, Inc., a leading global provider of residential solar services, today announced a new partnership with iconic New York City design destination, ABC Carpet & Home. The partnership not only provides ABC’s community with an easy and affordable solution to installing solar power in the home but also supports the greater mission to educate today’s conscious consumers with sustainable design, while minimizing their collective environmental footprint.

Sungevity solar experts will be available at the Manhattan-location of ABC Carpet & Home during NY Climate Week, Sept. 22-28. Solar consultants will be available to answer questions on renewable energy-consumption, carbon emissions and to help interested homeowners request a customized rendering and quote for solar installation on their home.

“When we launched the rooftop revolution in 2007, our goal was to make solar affordable and accessible,” said Andrew Birch, chief executive officer, Sungevity.

We are doing that, and as a result, solar is becoming the obvious choice. Now, through our partnership with the mission-based business, ABC Carpet & Home, we can deliver solar to consumers who see choosing solar as a complement to their social awareness.

With solar power set to double for the seventh straight year, the partnership between Sungevity and ABC Carpet & Home demonstrates how solar has become a lifestyle choice for consumers committed to doing their part to help curb climate change. Having developed successful partnerships with non-profits and retailers, this partnership provides another dimension to Sungevity’s partner strategy, allowing them to reach socially conscious, design-oriented consumers, while allowing ABC’s clientele a solution to help divest themselves of fossil fuels and proactively be a part of an environmental revolution.

“ABC is proud to stand with Sungevity and be a conduit through which this positive energy can flow, providing an actionable response to climate change, empowering our consumers to become the solution and bring it home,” said Paulette Cole, chief executive officer and creative director, ABC Carpet & Home.

Committed to fostering a green economy for a healthy planet and people, ABC will donate $150to the Barefoot College through the ABC Home & Planet Foundation for every solar conversion. Solar for solar, light for light, we celebrate this mutual alignment in mission with Sungevity and invite our community to be a part of the change and vote with their dollars.

Sungevity and ABC Carpet & Home seek to educate consumers about renewable energy and sustainable living, while driving awareness and visibility for eco-conscious goods and services. Together, both Sungevity and ABC use the power of business to address social and environmental issues while giving the collective community an opportunity to be part of the change.
