RE-volv is a conduit for people to donate money to help build community solar energy projects. Donations are pooled to create a “Solar Seed Fund”, which acts as a revolving loan fund to finance rooftop solar on community centers such as schools, hospitals and places of worship. Re-volv installs the solar panels and leases them to the community centers for 20 years at rates that allow the centers to save on energy costs while Re-volv recoups its costs and earns a small fee that goes back into the revolving loan fund. By enabling communities to go solar, Re-volv aims to build greater public support for a renewable energy future. RE-volv is in the early stages of development.
