Ethical Electric Receives Electrifying Investment

Ethical Electric, a renewable energy provider that connects consumers to 100% renewable energy, has announced $11 million in Series A funding. A group of investors was led by entrepreneur and impact investor Matthew Palevsky, who will be joining Ethical Electric’s board of directors.

Ethical Electric“Our business model offers the potential to shift a significant number of households to renewable energy sources and help transform the energy industry in the United States,” said Tom Matzzie, founder and CEO of Ethical Electric. “We are proud to be backed by investors who see the potential to give consumers a clean, renewable choice for their energy.”

Matzzie has experience building cause-based communities and was formerly a leader with In his past and current role, he has aggregated millions of Americans together for causes for more than a decade.

“The Ethical Electric team is applying their experience building large-scale progressive movements to disrupt incumbents in the energy sector,” said Palevsky. “The company has a compelling, scalable business plan and the right team to make it work.”

Brian Arbogast, a clean tech investor and current director at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation who led Ethical Electric’s earlier investment round and serves on its board of directors, added, “Tom has developed a very smart business plan and its success has the potential to drive adoption of renewable (solar and wind) energy faster than any other investment opportunity I have seen.”

  1. I would ask those who are working on this project contact me because I can help by bringing new concept energy technology to the project.

    Here is the notice I’ve been posting on Facebook and on Linkedin;


    Greetings, I would like to introduce Advanced Alternative Energy Corp.

    Advanced Alternative Energy Corp. (AAEC) is for those who believe in alternative energy as the most viable pathway to a better future for themselves and for humanity.

    AAEC has developed a new concept low-carbon energy technology we’ve designed for serving as the basis for tens of thousands of cleaner renewable energy production systems and energy efficiency improvements across the American landscape and around the world. AAEC’s new concept technology consists of a thermal and fuel gasification-conversion technology that can provide an on demand heat and power source for stand-alone use or to back up solar and wind energy systems and in this way help double the deployment of biomass, waste, solar and wind energy projects in the coming decades.

    We believe humanity needs to repower human activities with cleaner energy on a much wider scale, and that innovation is our key to a better future and we aspire to offer home and business owners, towns, cities, counties and utilities our new concept low-budget, low-carbon pathway to greater energy efficiency, energy security, cleaner energy and economic development. I think now that President Obama is moving the climate issue to the front burner will be a big boost to what I’m offering an increasingly stressed planet.

    I’m confident AAEC’s product lines can be manufactured in the US and in most any locality on any other continent for the local and regional market and exported. This I believe could create licensing opportunities and more jobs and these are among the things I can offer an alternative energy hungry world.

    I’m in hopes of finding others who will join and/or support this effort. Contact me for more info.
