30%

Due to their tax-exempt status, Non-profits are not eligible to apply the 30% Federal tax credit to their solar installations. However, there are options for non-profits to help cover solar costs.

Many non-profits finance their solar installations through a lease or PPA rather than owning the system, so there’s no upfront payment required.

10 to 20 years

Typical solar PPA lease agreements have a duration of 10 - 20 years.

Sun Light & Power understands mission-driven businesses – because we are one!

We are a mission-driven company with a long history of serving non-profit entities within our San Francisco Bay Area community. As a Certified Benefit Corporation, we have been dedicated to social good and to non-profit companies long before the Benefit Corporation designation became an option in California. We have served many non-profit organizations and we encourage our staff to volunteer with their favorite non-profits each year, giving them paid time off to do so.

We have extensive experience hiring from workforce development programs in the Bay Area and beyond, and we are proud of the many permanent employees we have brought into our team through such programs. 

Just like for-profit entities, non-profit organizations can benefit from commercial solar panels in a number of ways, including reducing current operating expenses, creating certainty around future energy costs, enhancing their mission and setting an example in their communities. 

  • We can help your non-profit access clean and affordable solar energy.

  • We work within your organization’s budget.

  • We provide expert assistance with available subsidies and financing options so you don’t have to navigate through the maze of details.

  • We help find the right path for your particular non-profit for financing, crowd-funding, and tax incentives.

Why Go Solar?

When it comes to combining solar energy with your business operation, think of solar as an investment that actually provides a return. A custom designed solar PV system or solar thermal hot water heating system will reduce your operating expenses, protect you from volatile utility costs, show your commitment to the environment and the green business movement, and can even increase the reliability of your electrical system.
