Sungevity, a Californian online solar provider, raised $6m in new funding led by Greener Capital, a new cleantech venture capital firm based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Charles Finnie, managing partner in Greener Capital, will join the Sungevity Board. The company has also added 3 members to its executive team, doubled its salesforce, and plans to enter three new geographies by the end of the year.
Comenting on the financing, Andrew Birch, CEO and cofounder of Sungevity, said: “With our easy online service, we have the lowest-cost way of getting solar power into American homes.
“Now we have the team and resources to make sunshine online available to millions of home-owners”.
