PosiGen Overview

Founded in 2011, PosiGen started out with a central vision of giving all types of families access to affordable solar and energy efficiency to help save on energy costs and improve their lives.

In a post-hurricane New Orleans, the founders of PosiGen reportedly shared the city’s frustration in terms of rebuilding. PosiGen was created with a mission to make clean sun energy available and affordable to all; to deliver savings to the families affected by hurricane Katrina and beyond – in the states of Louisiana, Connecticut and New Jersey. As their story goes, PosiGen’s founders identified a need and joined forces to do something about it. With an eye on helping the disadvantaged, the folks at PosiGen apparently got to work. Whether they have followed through on their vision and missions – beyond serving customers well – remains an open question to be tackled in this review.

PosiGen Legitimacy

PosiGen does not disclose specific information on its equipment and workmanship warranties, where these warranties should ideally and generally protect you (the customer) against any and all possible defects and errors.

However, the company did receive 100$ million of seed funding in early 2022, pointing towards some legitimacy.


PosiGen Maintenance

PosiGen is generous in offering life-long (lease-long) maintenance and monitoring. However, we did find various poor reviews about the company’s maintenance capabilities.

But what about if you want to move while under contract with PosiGen? Fortunately, they provide more than one option for those who need to move while still under contract. The first option entails the new homeowner to take on the agreement along with all obligations. PosiGen will relocate your solar power system for a flat fee of $750 only during the time of your move.  Alternatively, you can also decide to cancel your lease if you must and you can have the equipment removed for a flat fee of $600.



The SolarEmpower view

One of PosiGen’s greatest attributes must be their flexibility in payment options. However, in the shadow of a large number of negative customer complaints left online, one should definitely give it a second thought if considering to go with this company.

Are PosiGen Services trustworthy?

While some customers’ opinions are nothing but praiseworthy of PosiGen’s service and product delivery, according to others, they conversely regretted putting on the solar panels by PosiGen.

Are PosiGen good to work for?

As per the statement of a current PosiGen employee, he has been “able to grow with this company quickly”. Having worked his way up in the company from RES to team lead, this man is proud to mention the passion displayed by fellow employees. 

Moreover, this employee isn’t shy to rave about PosiGen’s management team – which is “always available to guide and help you”, according to him. With a personal love of the company’s motto, this employee takes great pride in serving homeowners with a means to lower their electricity bill.

Can you cancel a contract with PosiGen?

As per the state laws of New Jersey, Louisiana and Connecticut, customers cannot simply cancel a solar contract. However, the fact that you are allowed to cancel your contract at any time and only have to pay a fraction of the system cost is particularly generous of PosiGen and should be recognized as an outstanding benefit.
