Backers include Greycroft Partners, which was part of previous round of funding in 2018. Will Szczerbiak, a principal with the New York-based firm, said in a statement that Palmetto has “the best platform to bring renewable energy products and services to market.

As Featured In

We are entering a New Utility Revolution.

Americans have always been innovative. In the 1800s, the advent of the electricity grid was a groundbreaking innovation, transitioning the world away from lanterns powered by whale blubber to entire buildings powered by coal and oil. But now we’ve discovered how to power electricity from free, infinite sources like sunshine and wind -- not shipped overseas from our military enemies, but renewable right here in our own backyards. The Old Utility guard wants to protect the massive investment they’ve already made in their infrastructure… Unfortunately, that mindset is costing the rest of us everything. Make no mistake about it, climate change costs us billions today and will cost us trillions tomorrow. There is always a time for innovation - and that time is now.
