Community power groups

Page history last edited by RE-volv 11 years, 12 months ago

This page lists groups we may want to collaborate with to promote community power.


Group name  Description  Website, contact info  Comments
Solar Gardens Institute Provides tools and training to co-develop community solar arrays; has projects being developed now in Colorado and is affiliated with projects around the country.
1 Block off the Grid (1BOG)  A mission-driven for-profit that vets solar installers, negotiates great turnkey deals on solar with reputable providers, provides over-the-phone quotes, and gives prospective solar homeowners direct access to homeowners who have already installed solar for unvarnished information and advice. http://1bog.org/    
Clean Coalition  A nonprofit whose mission is to implement policies and programs that transition the world to cost-effective clean energy now while delivering unparalleled economic benefits. http://www.clean-coalition.org/   Also see the Clean Coalition's 2012 Legislative Agenda and the March 6th Palo Alto CLEAN news release.
350.org Grassroots nonprofit whose mission is to create a grassroots movement to move the Earth back to 350ppm of carbon in the air (currently we're at 392ppm).  http://www.350.org/  They have a very motivated Bay Area chapter with ties to many other NPOs in the area, could be great help in getting the word out about legislation and or potential projects.
A non-profit that's raising a revolving fund for community solar projects through donations. RE-volv's mission is to empower people and communities to invest collectively in renewable energy.



RE-volv received 501c3 status from the IRS in 2011 and is currently in discussion with the first community to potentially receive its solar leasing service.
