Clean Energy for Schools (and other non-profits)
No Risk – No Maintenance – No Cost
Perfect Timing in 2019
In the past, all renewable energy was an “idea for the future” that fiscally concerned organizations did not have the luxury of investing into. In 2019, an almost perfect storm of timing, incentive programs, lowered costs, and funding mechanisms, have made this the optimum time to invest in solar for projects sized 1-10MW.
Schools, Churches and other non-profits are a Good Fit for Solar
- Ground mounted solar installations are the most cost effective installations, require less permitting, and schools uniquely have open space and parking areas.
- Solar power is best consumed during the day without having to save the power in storage, and schools and churches operate mostly during the same sunlight hours.
- Non-Profit organizations normally can’t take the tax incentives of renewable clean energy generation, but our exclusive GCE “Energy for Education” program allows non-profits to take advantage of all the incentives and then some.
- The reduced cost of the project with tax incentives makes it so you can actually receive clean solar energy not at a higher price than standard, but actually cheaper than your standard utility rate.
- Schools and other non-profits can use the solar and renewable energy for educational and other socially responsible purposes.
- Non-Profits are in a leadership position in the community.
- Having renewable energy is a way to set your non-profit apart.
Energy Development Funding Mechanisms
With no money out of pocket, a qualified non-profit can have millions of dollars invested into an energy project through our “Energy for Education” development program. This program, “Energy for Education” allows schools, churches and other non-profits committed to sustainable energy practices to have access to this energy generation program without paying for the project upfront or dealing with the liability of managing the solar array.
What’s in it for you? (the organization)
It is as simple as trading the land (or rooftop) for $1, and powering your building with clean solar energy. We only have this program available for a short period of time, so we are looking to help communities that are truly are invested in wanting clean energy.
Solar is complicated, and it requires:
- Months of preparation
- Engineering, audits, evaluations
- Environmental studies
- Work with the utility company
- Applications to several government entities
- Constant project management
- Up-front costs from $60-100K+
The Energy for Education pays for, and manages the entire development process with no money out of pocket to the school.
