The Smart Way to Save Money - by Saving the Planet

We are a clean energy technology company fueling the rapid expansion of residential solar energy across the US. The clean energy revolution has been long overdue, and we want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to adopt clean energy for their homes.
Palmetto’s mission is to harness clean energy innovation and apply clean energy technology across the US while saving the environment and homeowners their savings.
We believe you don’t have to choose between your money and your values to make a climate impact.
And the time has never been better to install clean energy in your home. There has been a record surge in residential communities applying solar energy projects to their homes, with more than 500,000 US households installing solar panels in 2021. Along with that, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 provides for a 30% tax credit that can be applied to individual adopters of solar technology.

Our CEO, Chris Kemper, worked for years in the world’s leading organizations tasked with tackling the climate crisis. Chris soon realized that the worst effects of the climate crisis could be averted if societies across the globe quickly harnessed software and technology in the fight against fossil fuel energy infrastructure, a movement that he describes as the New Utility Revolution. At Palmetto, we know that the more time passes, the more significant the impact of climate change is.
Despite American households taking the initiative to utilize clean energy technology, the whole American electrical grid hasn’t adopted enough clean energy, nor has American electrical grids freed themselves from their toxic energy dependence on fossil fuels. As it stands today, solar energy provides a measly 3% of energy output for the United States. Still, the potential upside to Americans utilizing solar energy is monumental for clean energy independence and reaching global climate goals.
Did you know if the US devoted 22,000 square miles toward solar energy, it would be possible to power the entire United States with clean energy? While 22,000 square miles may seem like a large number, it's only a fraction of the US’s total land area. We invite you to think about all the bare rooftops, empty parking spaces, and spacious backyards that could have solar panels. Americans have proven that they are taking the bold climate initiative to supply clean energy in their homes, but why is the whole electrical grid still shackled to dirty fossil fuels known to wreak havoc on the environment and communities?
By using solar energy, you’re in control of how you spend your savings rather than letting the utility companies dictate it for you. Not to mention, you are saving the environment at the same time. You can play a role in today's clean energy revolution and build a climate-friendly future with Palmetto.
As of the Summer of 2022, Palmetto homeowners are on track to prevent more than two million metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering our atmosphere. And we have calculated that for the 25 years of energy production for every system installed and activated by Palmetto, we can impact equivalently –
  • 1,964,250,000 fewer pounds of coal burned and emitted into the atmosphere
  • 4,466,310,000 fewer miles driven by fossil fuel vehicles
  • 23,390,000 trees being grown for ten years

    I think it's a great way to encourage people to choose the planet indirectly if they just don't naturally think that it's super important, cost-effective yet clean energy can help. 💡
