Greenpenny Seeks to Create Bright Lights in Midwestern Communities Through Solar System Lending and Sustainable Banking

Greenpenny Seeks to Create Bright Lights in Midwestern Communities Through Solar System Lending and Sustainable Banking

Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin – This week, Greenpenny is launching a campaign to build awareness around solar energy system financing and sustainable banking solutions. The Bright Light theme reflects a focus to help communities in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin adopt solar energy systems to power their neighborhoods, businesses small and large, non-profits, and farms.

Bring On the Bright Light of Solar
"We believe solar systems have become bright lights in the renewable energy movement," says greenpenny V.P., Jason MacDuff. "At greenpenny, we strive to make it easy for people to be bright lights in their communities by offering fast, easy, and affordable financing for solar projects. Whether the appeal of solar systems is their climate stewardship, economic benefits – or both – greenpenny is ready to help finance bright lights of renewable energy across Midwestern communities."

The combination of federal tax incentives and competitive financing terms makes converting to solar through greenpenny comparable to swapping a monthly utility bill for a solar system loan payment. Once the loan is paid in full, potential exists for meaningful savings.

The Bright Lights of Virtual Banking
People across the nation can bank with virtual, carbon-neutral greenpenny. Customers enjoy competitive rates, features and experiences with greenpenny’s Checking and Savings Accounts, and CD’s. Money deposited in greenpenny is secure, earns interest, and is only used to finance renewable energy projects like solar – no fossil fuels. Customers open accounts online and access hi-tech online and mobile banking platforms with zero ATM fees worldwide – ever! And greenpenny bankers are just a phone call away at 888-GPENNY0 (888-473-6690).

The Bright Light campaign will include new and expanded digital display, video, website and direct mail content with active social media outreach. The company hopes to conduct media interviews to help get the word out too.

“We want to talk with anyone who can help shine a bright light on values-based banking experiences,” added MacDuff.  “Financing a sustainable tomorrow is the sole mission of greenpenny.  And the more people with us on our mission, the more we can do our part to create a more sustainable planet together."
