Educational & Non-profit Institutions
A growing number of schools, universities and non-profits are deploying solar energy. Many now use solar PV systems to provide electricity for their buildings, benefiting from both a social and environmental perspective as well as a financial one.
For non-profit organizations and institutions, solar energy can be installed for zero upfront costs, while at the same time saving the organization thousands of dollars annually on electric bills.
With solar, educational facilities and non-profit organizations can expect to see many benefits.
Towns, school and universities, and non-profit organizations are using their green clout to educate the public, students and staff about the benefits of clean energy. A commitment to environmental stewardship also helps organizations attract more environmentally concerned individuals for admissions or membership.
Solar Financing for Institutions
The majority of non-profit institutions, including schools and universities, benefit most through a Solect Power Purchase Agreement or in some cases choose to own the system through a capital purchase.
Interested non-profit institutions can also benefit from Solect’s new partnership with energy consortium PowerOptions, the Small Systems Solar Program. This program brings on-site solar PPAs to small to mid-sized commercial nonprofit solar arrays up to 300kW, allowing eligible institutions to enjoy substantial savings, and avoid lengthy RFP processes with no capital outlay.
Solect will work with your organization during the feasibility assessment to determine which financial solutions are appropriate for your long-term success.
