The cost of traditional energy is constantly increasing. Also, it is only going to continue to rise, and people realize this. Solar energy is better for the environment and will allow organizations, such as non-profits, to avoid the rising costs and to run more efficiently.
The sun’s price is never going to increase. We are never going to pay more for the use of the sun’s energy. The only cost of using solar energy is the initial investment for the equipment.
By installing solar panels, your non-profit will show their dedication to making the world a healthier place to live. Taking steps in this direction will maximize donations, improve brand perception, and even increase interest in your cause.
The Power Purchase Agreement is a method of financing that is becoming more useful for solar PV systems in commercial and non-profit organization. The Power Purchase Agreement is designed as a long-term contract between the non-profit and the solar developer or financier. This allows the customer to use solar power and support the reduction of fossil fuels while avoiding the initial upfront costs.
Having a solar energy system is not only good for the environment but for your wallet as well. Environmental companies are working with the government to support solar deployment. We make sure that there are many resources for others to use to educate themselves so that they too can see the many benefits.
There are also many programs available. The President’s Climate Action Plan is set to double the United States renewable energy deployment between 2012 and 2020. Part of the plan is also to install one hundred megawatts of solar on federally-assisted housing.
Solar jobs are actually growing twelve times faster than the rest of the economy. This shows how many people are going solar and how great is it for Americans both in their homes and at their jobs.
More than ninety member-owned, not-for-profit rural electric cooperatives in sixteen different states have committed to install community solar by the end of 2017. Nearly sixty co-ops in twenty-five states have already brought solar online in 2015. These numbers will continue to increase in the coming years.
