Rumson, NJ, United States, 2010/04/14 - GeoGenix, an industry leader in residential and commercial solar installations, has been selected by NJR Home Services (NJRHS) to provide installation and maintenance of renewable energy systems through the company’s new solar leasing program - NJRHomeSer.
NJRHS, a subsidiary of New Jersey Resources Corporation (NJR), recently announced the program that will make solar energy affordable and accessible to homeowners. While purchasing solar panels can typically cost tens of thousands of dollars, even with generous rebates from the state, NJRHS will lease solar panels to homeowners for approximately $52 per month for a six-kilowatt system over a 20-year period. That monthly rate is fixed over the life of the lease and includes all installation and maintenance costs.
“This lease is an ideal solution for a homeowner who wants to go green and install solar on their home, but wants to avoid upfront installation and ongoing maintenance costs. With this arrangement, they can cut their electric bills by up to 50% and just pay a fixed monthly payment throughout the 20-year term of the lease,” said Pete Ramsey, director of business development for GeoGenix.
“With renewable energy increasingly becoming a larger component of the energy mix and a priority in our state and nation, we have identified a unique opportunity to provide our customers with an affordable and easy way to access solar power and save on their electricity costs,” said Laurence M. Downes, chairman and CEO of NJR. “We are proud to partner with GeoGenix to bring this renewable technology to our customers and support our state renewable energy goals.”
“We are pleased to be selected by NJR Home Services for this leasing program,” said Gaurav Naik, principal of GeoGenix. “We are proud to be working with a company that has a history of taking great strides to help New Jersey meet its renewable energy goals.”
GeoGenix is seeking customers who might be interested in this new offer; however, there are several criteria for eligibility. First, a home must have a south facing roof in order to draw maximum exposure from the sun (southeast to southwest facing roofs may be acceptable). Additionally, the roof area must be clear of shading from trees or other structures. Lastly, the roof should be no more than five years old so that the life of the lease coincides with the average life of a roof.
Interested customers that meet the criteria above are encouraged to call GeoGenix at 1-877-4GRNPOWER (1-877-447-6769) or visit info[.]geogenix.com.

Our many achievements include the first “Net Zero” electric commercial building in the nation. While there are many new entrants in the solar business, GeoGenix has been installing solar since 2001 and has the experience, expertise, and track record to trust.
