We have been a grant funded non-profit that adheres to a competitive RFQ/RFP installer selection process each year as part of a "solarize campaign." We provide two primary functions to the industry; as a marketing function, we serve as a broad-spectrum education and outreach firm, holding informational sessions, workshops, and tabling events where we teach communities, businesses, and municipalities about photovoltaic systems, market performance, as well as connect them to solar incentives.
Our model is, and will continue to be the "solarize" business model. For more information on what a solarize campaign is please view this short video from our partners at Cornell Cooperative Extension: https://youtu.be/v4Zj3KCQbaQ
This campaign hopes to provide funding for future clean energy development. Our goal is based on the gap between capital and fiscal year 2018's operational expenses. To date, we have accomplished putting nearly 1 megawatt of solar on the grid in upstate NY, provided 4 full-time positions, hosted over 100 interns, most of whom have gone on to clean energy professions or clean energy higher ed, and as our primary function, have turned thousands of upstate NYers into educated solar consumers.
