Astrum Solar Expands Operations in New York
New Middletown Regional Operations Center to Service the Tri-State Area

Annapolis Junction, MD (June 26, 2012) – Further expanding its footprint in the state of New York and across the eastern portion of the country, Astrum Solar, the leading full-service residential solar provider headquartered in the eastern United States, today announced the opening of a new regional operations center in Middletown, N.Y.

The Middletown location, Astrum Solar's second regional operations center in New York, was opened to meet growing customer demand in the Tri-State area. Astrum Solar has been doing business throughout New York for more than a year; the Middletown location will enable the company to serve more customers throughout New York's Hudson Valley, Connecticut and Northern New Jersey while creating additional area jobs.

The new regional operations center opening coincides with Astrum Solar's sponsorship of the Sustainable Hudson Valley Ten Percent Challenge. The Ten Percent Challenge is a call to simple actions that can be scaled up to make a measurable difference in renewable energy use. Switching to solar power is an important step homeowners can take to reduce their carbon emissions and live more sustainably.

"The state of New York is fast becoming a leader in the adoption of residential solar power, and the addition of another regional operations center will help us to serve even more residents in both New York and its neighboring states," said Astrum Solar President and Chief Executive Officer Vadim Polikov. "We are also thrilled to help further the mission of Sustainable Hudson Valley by spreading solar to rooftops across the area."
