Financing Energy Projects
PPA For Non-Profits
Financing for renewable energy projects is the key to adoption. Non-Profits can benefit from solar more due to their smaller budgets to cover operating expenses. Every dollar saved with solar energy is a dollar that can benefit their charitable mission and bolster community support and involvement. PPA financing requires no money-out-of-pocket and the PACE backed structure is a great match for the non-profit sector.

Vital Gathering Spaces
Community spaces are critical to our community health. A healthy community has a places where citizens can gather to relax, meet neighbors, talk, play, sing and celebrate life every day. “Placemaking” is the cure for suburban sprawl, and the over-development of town centers that reduce our vital public space. It’s important for residents to speak out against developments that deplete a community’s ability to interact in meaningful ways.
