About RE-volv

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. We crowdsource to put solar panels on community-serving nonprofit organizations. As these organizations pay us back, we reinvest the money into more solar projects in communities across the country.

Help us spread solar and bring the benefits of clean energy to communities that need it most.

About RE-volv

RE-volv is a nonprofit social enterprise fighting climate change and working to build a more sustainable and equitable world. We do this by accelerating the adoption of clean energy in local communities. RE-volv empowers people to bring clean energy to their communities by providing the upfront costs of installing solar energy systems to local nonprofits. Through an innovative solar financing model, these nonprofits immediately save on their electricity costs, while their monthly solar payments contribute to a revolving fund, which helps pay for the next nonprofit’s solar system – a first-of-its-kind pay-it-forward model for renewable energy financing we call the Solar Seed Fund.

RE-volv has received numerous awards, including a Business Innovation Award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Sunshot Initiative, is an inaugural member of the White House National Community Solar Partnership, and winner of the OpenIDEO Climate Innovation Fellowship.

RE-volv is at an exciting moment in the life of the organization. With over 1MW of solar financed for 35 nonprofits in 13 states, and with a tax equity finance partnership in place, the opportunity to scale is massive.
