Solar for Nonprofits

Tax incentives have been one of the key drivers of solar adoption for homeowners and businesses, which has left nonprofits behind despite the clear alignment for mission-oriented organizations. As a social enterprise dedicated to expanding access to solar, Resonant Energy has developed local financing strategies that allow nonprofits to save the most on their operating costs, while benefitting the environment, and joining our coalition for an inclusive and just energy future. Whether you want to use the power in-house or share solar with your community, every sunny roof can be put to work fighting for a cleaner and more equitable future.
