Spiritual Centers Can Commit to the Environment and Give to the community.
One of the highest operating costs in the spiritual center facility is electricity, so a transition to a commercial solar installation would lead to substantial savings. Many spiritual centers and churches are interested in clean solar energy but struggle because the incentives available to tax-paying entities are not applicable to non-profits. We understand your struggle and offer creative approaches to the Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Area.
- We collaborate with a number of forward-thinking agencies to develop the programs necessary to bring small and medium-sized system financing to life.
- We are able to offer third-party lease options that feature minimal up-front costs and are cash flow positive in the very earliest years of the system’s lifetime.
Crowdfunding is an option
Crowdfunding harnesses the power of a collective – parishioners for example – to fund a commercial solar installation project with individual contributions. This allows participants to take advantage of the elusive tax incentives, simultaneously helping the church, helping the parishioners, and helping the planet!
How does crowdfunding work?
Sun Light & Power provides a site assessment and works with the nonprofit to determine the optimal solar design for their commercial solar installation. Then we bring our crowdfunding partners on board. At this point, members of the community are able to invest in the individual solar project with attractive and steady rates of return. Once the entire investment amount has been reached, we build the project. The nonprofit enters into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with our partner and begins saving money on their electricity bill from day one.

“I would not hesitate to work with SLP anytime in the future. I would also highly recommend them to anyone looking for a solar system.

“The Church decided to install panels for a few reasons, including giving people shaded parking, saving natural resources and a higher reason.”
