Groundswell is a 501c3 nonprofit that builds community power through equitable community solar projects and resilience centers, clean energy programs that reduce energy burdens, and pioneering research initiatives that help light the way to clean energy futures for all. Groundswell leads clean energy programs and projects in five states including the District of Columbia, serving more than 5,500 income-qualified customers with more than $2.75 million per year in clean energy savings.


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.
