RE-volv is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco. What we do is empower people
around the country to bring clean energy to their communities. RE-volv finances solar energy projects
for small nonprofit organizations that can’t afford the up-front costs of solar. As the nonprofits save money on their electric bills through solar energy, they pay RE-volv back over a 20-year lease. That money is reinvested into future solar projects creating a first-of-its-kind revolving fund for solar energy. We call it the Solar Seed Fund. Learn more
