We’ve joined forces with RE-volv, a SF-based nonprofit organization that supports the growth of solar communities across the United States.

 

RE-volv is raising money for our 36W solar system. In turn, we’ll pay RE-volv back, and the money we pay back will be reinvested into more solar projects across our country.
