"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. 'The potential for rooftop solar and the electrification of homes in the U.S. is huge and the competitive landscape is fairly fragmented with just a few dominant players,' said Robert Linck, chief investment officer at Shell Ventures."
