RE-volv: People-funded renewable energy

Solar for the rest of us.

The Problem

Solar is growing as a business but it is not available where it is needed most. Community-based nonprofits do not have the funds nor can they benefit from the tax credits to go solar.

Community based nonprofits are missing out on the benefits of solar and the ability to reduce their carbon footprint. They may own their own buildings but they don't have the expertise and can't get financing for solar.

Nonprofits are dedicated to serving our communities. Many want to go solar, reduce carbon emissions and save on electricity but they don't have the expertise and can't get financing for solar.

The Solution

Every donation to RE-volv serves to save money on utility bills for mission driven non-profits, to reduce carbon emissions, and to teach others about the benefits of clean energy. RE-volv is a unique platform providing crowdfunding, installation, and education for solar energy to non-profits and the community at large. A portion of earnings go into the RE-volv Solar Seed Fund, which means that you are not only funding solar projects today, but also helping to build a dedicated fund for other nonprofits in our communities to go solar long into the future.
