Building Community Through Solar

We believe that everyone should have the ability to support clean energy.

So we created a new way for people to take action.
 

It's a pretty simple idea actually...

We're raising money in this campaign to put solar on Other Avenues, a worker-owned cooperative grocery store.  As they pay us back, we reinvest the money into more solar projects in communities across the country.

It's a pay-it-forward model for community solar.

We call it the Solar Seed Fund.

RE-volv is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco dedicated to fighting climate change by supporting the growth of solar energy in communities across the United States.

By supporting this campaign you are helping Other Avenues fulfill its commitment to sustainability, while growing the Solar Seed Fund that will finance solar projects around the country.
 

RE-volv has financed two solar projects so far through crowdfunding on Indiegogo (Check out our previous campaigns Plant a Seed for Solar Energy and Revolving Fund for Solar Energy).  The Solar Seed Fund is already revolving, and over $7,000 in lease payments from our last two projects are helping to fund this one! And with your help, we can make this our biggest project yet! 

 

About Other Avenues

Other Avenues is a worker-owned cooperative grocery store that's been serving the Outer Sunset community of San Francisco for 40 years.  It serves local, organic, and healthy food and is deeply committed to sustainability and workplace democracy. With your support, Other Avenues can fulfill a long-held dream of going solar!

 

Benefits for Other Avenues and the Environment

This campaign will finance a 36 kW solar energy system for the Other Avenues worker-owned cooperative grocery store, saving them $335,000 over the life of the system, and saving our atmosphere from the emission of 24,000 pounds of carbon dioxide each year! That's equivalent to planting over 100 acres of trees over the life of the system.

 

About our model

By donating to the Solar Seed Fund, you’re investing in this solar energy project andfuture projects for other communities. RE-volv pays for solar energy installations for nonprofits and cooperatives that serve their community. As these community-serving organizations pay RE-volv back over time, RE-volv reinvests the principal and the interest it earns with each project into additional solar projects. On average, each project ends up funding another 3 solar projects!  Investing in the Solar Seed Fund means every dollar you donate will go further- your donation will multiply over time, serving more and more communities with solar.

*All donations to this campaign are tax-deductible.*

**Check with your employer to see if they'll match your donation!**
