FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who has Ecogy worked with in the past and how long have you been around?
Ecogy was founded as a developer, financier and owner-operator of distributed generation resources in 2011 with our first project for Longwood Gardens, the nation's largest botanical garden. Since then, we have found our niche specializing in financing distributed generation assets for traditionally underserved entities including affordable housing, non-profits and municipalities. Our current portfolio comprises over 35 systems across 6 states, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Our most recent projects were for Howard University in D.C., the Wilmington Housing Authority in Wilmington, DE, and the Town of Lyndhurst, NJ.
Am I able to host a community solar system and also subscribe to it to save on my energy bills?
Absolutely. In this case, hosts of community solar systems will receive the guaranteed lease payment in addition to energy savings on their electric bills. Moreover, Ecogy will provide a comprehensive marketing and PR campaign including drone videography and a Flip the Switch celebration ceremony.
What happens if I decide to sell the building?
If you were to decide to sell the building at a future point, the lease agreement could simply be transferred and assigned over to the new owner similar to any other lease arrangement. Additionally, having this lease agreement in place actually makes your property more attractive to potential buyers as there is already an income-opportunity established through the revenue-generating system.
How does Ecogy offer no-cost solar?
Ecogy is unique in that we have internal capital to develop, finance, and own & operate these projects. Rather than sell you on a very expensive solar system, we want to pay you to host one of our own - all on our dime. We believe it's a better option for us to own and operate these systems due to our veteran team of asset/energy managers and software architects, and our experience managing a portfolio of a variety of projects.
How will the system impact my roof?
Any damage we cause we are liable for. When feasible, we use ballasted, non-penetrating racking solutions for flat-roofs and non-penetrating clamp racking for standing seam roofs. These systems are simply weighed down by concrete blocks avoiding any penetrations to your roof - minimizing any risk.
