Groundswell is a 501c3 nonprofit that serves local communities by developing solar projects and resilience hubs; helping neighbors share power; reducing energy burdens through efficiency; connecting clean energy supply chains to local economic development; and leading pioneering research to help light the way to affordable energy. Through our work, we are building clean energy futures that reflect the beautiful diversity of the communities we serve.

Sharing from abundance.

The sun’s energy is plentiful, but access to power from the sun is often exclusive — available only to the financially privileged. We believe that’s wrong and that there’s a better way, so we asked ourselves how can we “love our neighbors as ourselves” through the abundant energy available from the sun? That’s why we build solar projects that share power, devote 100% of solar savings to those who need them most, and are deeply connected to the economic vitality of the communities they serve.

Whether you rent or own your home, if you live in one of the communities Groundswell serves, you can sign up and subscribe to SharePowerTM for locally-produced solar energy.
