Astrum Solar and Ethical Electric Announce Partnership
Partnership allows consumers to generate or purchase power from 100% renewable sources

WASHINGTON (April 21, 2014) – Astrum Solar, a leading national full-service residential solar provider, and Ethical Electric, a renewable energy provider that connects consumers to 100% renewable energy in minutes with no change in their monthly payment routine, today announced a partnership that will cross-promote each company’s offerings into their installed base. Customers of both companies will soon be able to take advantage of complementary renewable energy offerings.

“With this partnership our customers can have the full range of clean energy options. Homeowners can install solar panels and meet the balance of their electricity needs from wind and other clean sources through Ethical Electric,” said Tom Matzzie, founder and CEO of Ethical Electric. “All of this helps us fulfill our mission of shifting as many American homes as possible away from “dirty” energy to “clean” energy from renewable sources.”

Ethical Electric enters into power purchase agreements with renewable energy developers and then resells 100% renewable electricity through a customer’s existing utility relationship. Astrum Solar works directly with consumers to design, finance, install and maintain solar panel systems which allow consumers to have their own clean power plants and insulate themselves from increasing utility rates.

“We are very excited to be working with such a prestigious and rapidly growing provider of clean energy across the Northeast,” said Josh Goldberg, Astrum Solar co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer. “We share Ethical Electric’s commitment to providing simple and reliable access to renewable energy and admire their innovative business model.”
