Sunshine to Electricity in Oakland

Faith Baptist Church plays a critical role in the East Oakland community. One of the ways they serve the community is through their Food Giving Program, where volunteers give out food to those less fortunate. Faith Baptist Church gives out over 100 tons of food every year. Every other week, people from East Oakland and beyond line up at the Church to receive free food to feed their families. Faith Baptist church feeds over 300 families every month with it's Food Giving Program.

By supporting this crowdfunding campaign you can help Faith Baptist Church feed even more people. The goal of this campaign is to raise enough money to put solar panels on Faith Baptist Church. This 5.8kW solar array will cover 100% of their electricity usage and save them over 30% on their electric bills. That's money that can be put into serving more people in the community with their incredible Food Giving Program.


How RE-volv works

RE-volv is a nonprofit that helps community-serving nonprofits go solar. RE-volv’s mission is to empower people, like you, to invest collectively in renewable energy. This crowdfunding campaign will cover the upfront costs of the solar installation at Faith Baptist Church. Once the solar energy system is up and running and powering Faith Baptist Church with clean energy, they pay RE-volv back over time through a solar lease at a rate much less than what they were paying the utility company. Those payments grow a revolving fund for solar called the Solar Seed Fund.

 

Impact beyond this project

The Solar Seed Fund is used to invest in future solar energy projects for nonprofits around the country. Because your donation will grow the Solar Seed Fund, your donation’s impact will multiply over time as RE-volv continually invests in more projects, which you get to select! Like this project, all those future projects will improve our environment and strengthen our communities. Past projects have shown that when a community-serving organization shows leadership in environmental stewardship it inspires others in the community to do likewise.
