How it works
How does RE-volv work?
RE-volv’s website, RE-volv.org, lets people donate money to help build community solar energy projects. Donations are pooled together in what we call the "Solar Seed Fund." The Solar Seed Fund is a revolving fund that finances solar energy systems in community centers.
The community centers we serve are non-profit organizations that play an important role in their community - such as a school, university, hospital, or place of worship. Solar energy saves these community centers money every month on their electricity bills, allowing them to showcase renewable energy and better serve their community.
A community center leases solar equipment from RE-volv for 20 years, during which time the cost of the solar installation, plus a small fee, is recouped by RE-volv. RE-volv continually reinvests the money earned through solar leases back into the Solar Seed Fund in order to serve more communities with solar energy. Since the Solar Seed Fund earns a return on each community solar lease, our collective fund for renewable energy is continuously growing.
