About the campaign

Over the past two years, University of Oregon students have been working tremendously hard to bring solar energy to Eugene. When we are not in classes, we are working with RE-Volv Solar, a non-profit based in San Francisco. RE-volv raises money to bring renewable energy to community-serving nonprofit organizations like homeless shelters, schools, community centers, and houses of worship.


We have engaged with a local non-profit here in Eugene: Independent Environments Inc. to help them reduce their operating costs. Independent Environments provides services and support for those with disabilities. With our solar installation, Independent Environments will be able to save at least 15% on their utility bills and focus their resources on more crucial features throughout their organization.


Solar is a simple solution to help reduce carbon emissions, make the air cleaner, and strengthen communities.

Every dollar donated to the Solar Seed Fund is invested directly into community-serving nonprofit solar projects, like schools, homeless shelters, and food pantries.

When these nonprofits go solar, they not only save money, but re-allocate money spent on dirty energy toward fulfilling their missions. That means that your donated dollar helps both people and the planet. We call that a win-win.

When each project is complete, RE-volv will send you the address and photos of the community benefiting from your donation.
