In the middle of April, Panasonic announced the establishment of Panasonic Eco Solutions North America (PESNA), a new business unit of Panasonic Corporation of North America (PNA) moving one step forward to achieving its goal. PESNA will provide comprehensive renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions to corporate and public sector organizations from the planning and engineering stages through implementation, construction and permanent financing, as well as ongoing system maintenance.

Exclusive Relationship with RSB Will Accelerate
PESNA has established an exclusive relationship through the end of 2012 with RSB Funds for the co-development of commercial-scale solar projects in North America. The two will work together to provide financing, building and maintenance of commercial solar PV projects for the private sector as well as nonprofits, municipalities, hospitals, schools, low-income housing projects and other tax-exempt entities.
Renewable Social Benefit Funds (RSB Funds) is an alternative energy company focused on bringing solar power to nonprofits, municipalities, hospitals, schools, low-income housing projects and other tax-exempt entities. RSB Funds develops solar projects for its clients that require no initial investment, provide the best-in-breed operation and maintenance, and always reduce energy costs so that savings can be used to support mission- critical programs.
"As a company that aims to help enable a sustainable future, Panasonic is delighted to be working with RSB Funds," said Jim Doyle President of PESNA. "They have a great record of achievement in making the benefits of solar power available to non-profits and other similar organizations."
