Help Nonprofits Go Solar
How it works
You can help nonprofits across the country immediately save money on their electricity bills by going solar. Saving money means they can better serve their communities, while the remaining energy savings are reinvested into future solar projects. We call this the Solar Seed Fund – a one-of-a-kind, pay-it-forward revolving fund for solar for nonprofits.PLANT A SEED

We believe that everyone should have the ability to support and spread clean energy. So we created a new way for people to take action. It's a pretty simple idea. Through an innovative solar financing model, these nonprofits immediately save on their electricity costs. As these organizations pay us back, we reinvest the money into more solar projects in communities across the country. This creates a revolving fund for solar energy that continually perpetuates itself building more and more solar. It's a pay-it-forward model for solar energy. We call it the Solar Seed Fund.
