Zero Down Solar can help Non-Profits benefit from solar through cash purchase or various financing options.

ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR WAYS FOR NON-PROFITS TO FINANCE A SOLAR INSTALLATION IS THROUGH A PPA WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO AVAIL OF THE ITC TAX CREDIT (30%)- EITHER PARTIALLY OR FULLY.
A SOLAR POWER PURCHASE AGREEMENT IS A CONTRACT THROUGH WHICH A DEVELOPER TAKES CARE OF EVERYTHING FROM FINANCING TO INSTALLATION TO MAINTENANCE AT A NON-PROFIT'S PROPERTY AT NO COST.

Many PPAs offer a path to ownership after 7 years offering the nonprofit entity an option to ultimately own the solar installation and save a greater amount of money in the long-term. Some nonprofits may also opt to continue making payments on the solar array 20 years.

Zero financial investment is required upfront in a solar PPA arrangement.

Nonprofits, municipalities, or schools partner with a private solar investor, who can take advantage of federal tax programs not available to a nonprofit. The 3rd-party investor purchases and builds a suitable solar array at the nonprofit's location, and then sells the solar power generated from that array to the nonprofit at locked-in predefined rates.

A solar PPA offers a non-profit very competitive rates for electricity without the risk of fluctuation. The non-profit's solar array's generation is tied into the nonprofit's electric meters, therefore, the nonprofit's consumption from the electric grid is reduced proportionally.
