Solar company Clean Energy USA has a special program designed just for non-profits. It allows non-profits to receive solar at no up-front costs and financing at heavily subsidized rates.
Solar panels can be expensive, and since non-profits cannot take tax credits, non-profits often cannot take advantage of the incentives available for residential customers, so we created a program for higher savings.
Additionally, most non-profits also are in perpetual states of raising funds, so they do not have the ability to spend a large sum of money to pay for their solar, even if ultimately it will pay for itself quickly.
Our non-profit program is designed to help non-profits purchase and install solar panels without compromising on their core expenses. Our non-profit program is similar to our residential programs, but the monthly payments are at a highly subsidized rate.
Several religious organizations in Delaware have taken advantage of the program, as have thrift shops and even some homeowners associations who are considered non-profit organizations. Contact us today to find out how Clean Energy USA can help your non-profit to drastically reduce your energy costs.
Non-profit program details
Clean Energy USA allows residential customers to save over 50% on what they pay their utility for electricity versus what they make in payments for their solar. If the solar saves the customer $10,000 a year on electric bills, the customer ends up paying $5,000 or less for the solar equipment that creates the higher savings.
When you combine the savings for all of the solar electric systems Clean Energy USA has installed to date, the estimated savings on electric bills will be well over $120,000,000. Those numbers only include the savings during the 25-year warranty of the solar panels and not additional savings that will be generated during their expected useful lifetime.
How Solar Panels Work
Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity. A house, or building, uses that electricity and reduces the amount of energy it needs to buy from the utility companies. When a property cannot use all of the power that is being created by the solar panels, the excess goes through the electric meter, spinning it backward at the same rate as it spins forward.
If at the end of a billing period, the meter shows that more power has gone out through the meter than into the meter, a credit will show on that customer’s electric bill. This concept is called “net metering.” Learn more about how solar panels work.
