Company helps more than 1 million people prosper from clean energy
Completes $244 million solar loan securitizationr from clean energy
Oakland, Calif., September 15, 2022 – Mosaic, a leading financing platform for U.S. residential solar and energy-efficient home improvements, today announced it has surpassed $9 billion in loans funded through its platform. The company continues to see significant growth — surpassing $8 billion in loans funded just eight weeks ago.
“The need for clean energy and sustainable home improvements has never been greater,” said Billy Parish, founder and CEO of Mosaic. “Just last week, millions of people were under excessive heat warnings, which put pressure on electric grids in several states. Our partners and industry play a critical role in helping homeowners make their homes more energy efficient and resilient. There’s so much opportunity to not only prevent the worst impacts of climate change, but also support an adaptable and modern grid through the adoption of solar panels, battery storage and high-efficiency electrical appliances. And now, the Inflation Reduction Act will make it even easier for people to choose these options.”
Mosaic passed another significant milestone in September: Helping more than 1 million people prosper from clean energy. By making financing affordable and accessible, the company has helped more than a million homeowners, contractor partners, equipment suppliers, and Mosaic employees and their families.
“We started Mosaic to empower as many homeowners as possible to own their own clean energy,” said Parish. “We know that the more people who benefit financially from transitioning to clean energy, the faster adoption will occur. Thank you to all of our customers, partners, investors and teammates who’ve made this possible — we’re just getting started!”
