About Us

RE-volv is a lean nonprofit social enterprise focused on fighting climate change by accelerating the adoption of clean energy in local communities. RE-volv empowers communities by financing the upfront costs of installing solar energy systems at local nonprofits. Through an innovative solar financing model, these nonprofits immediately save on their electricity costs, while the remaining revenue from their solar assets contributes to a revolving fund, which helps to pay for the next nonprofit’s solar system – a first-of-its-kind pay-it-forward model for renewable energy financing. Through the process, RE-volv’s primary goal is to engage as many people as possible in building the clean energy economy.

RE-volv has received numerous awards, including a Business Innovation Award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Sunshot Initiative, is an inaugural member of the White House National Community Solar Partnership, and winner of the OpenIDEO Climate Innovation Fellowship. RE-volv receives generous support from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, U.S. Department of Energy’s Sunshot Initiative, the 11th Hour Project of the Schmidt Family Foundation, and many others.

RE-volv is at an exciting moment in the life of the organization. With 25 nonprofit solar leases signed in 6 states, RE-volv has proven that our model works, that there’s an enormous demand for our services, and that the opportunity to scale is massive.
