How Non-Profits Can Take Advantage of Solar Power
The benefits of solar energy are abundant; however, non-profits often lack the funding for installation. In addition, they cannot take advantage of local or federal tax credits available for solar installation, leading to a long payback period.
Fortunately, there are many ways non-profits can raise money to switch to solar and even take advantage of the tax benefits, which include the following:
- Power Purchase Agreements (PPA): Many non-profits finance their solar installation through either a lease or a PPA, as opposed to owning the system. Not only are leases and PPAs $0-down so organizations don’t have to pay any upfront costs, but they also enable non-profits to receive tax credits and other financial incentives since—technically—a third-party financier owns the system and covers the installation and maintenance costs for a duration of typically ten to 20 years. Every month, property owners would pay the leasing company to rent the system and generate free electricity, saving ten to 30 percent of their monthly energy bill.
- Donations: Non-profits have dedicated members or associated groups who can help donate and fundraise. Members can contribute to lasting electricity bill savings by helping their organization transition into solar.
- Crowdfunding: Non-profits can obtain donations from other sources through crowdfunding. The donations are solicited online, focusing on communities that benefit from the organization’s work.
- PACE Financing: This financing option may help monetize the Tax credit. Check out our financing options or call our team to learn more about how we can help.
