Sunvestment Group Announces Continuation of NYSERDA Partnership

Rochester, N.Y. -- Sunvestment Group (SVG) will continue its efforts to ease the complexities of solar financing through its innovative online platform, as a result of new support from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

Through this partnership, Sunvestment will launch Phase II of its powerful online suite of tools and services. This web-based platform will bring all stakeholders—solar customers, investors and contractors — together in one place to conduct transactions.
