SolSolution has just raised the full funding for its first solar school installation on Aruna's Place! (See our other projects and events.) And now, we want to ride the momentum forward to continue bringing solar to more schools across the country.
SolSolution is a nonprofit social enterprise whose mission is to simultaneously generate clean, renewable electricity and increase the quality of education in underprivileged schools. We adapt the proven, for-profit, solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) model and transform it to make SolSolution a high impact, self-sustaining nonprofit. SolSolution reinvests its net income into the educational budgets of its partner schools through Educational Programs focused on solar, STEM, and green-entrepreneurship education. Additionally, low-income schools have exclusive access to additional funding through SolSolution's Solar Powered Schools Granting Program.
But in order to keep doing what we absolutely love doing at SolSolution, we need continued funding for our team and daily operations. We know the Crowdrise community is filled with amazing people and organizations doing awe-inspiring things. We just hope you think we're one of them too.
