During this FREE webinar, Elvis and Sara will share a high-level overview of common challenges for nonprofits as identified in the LIFT research, examples of project models that overcame specific challenges, and nonprofit-specific project finance tips. The discussion will also include insight into how key financing mechanisms have been used to deliver successful projects.
In addition to resources for nonprofits, the LIFT toolkit features the largest searchable database of community solar projects serving low to moderate-income (LMI) families in the US – the first of its kind. Toolkit users can explore a map of 453 community solar projects serving LMI subscribers, design their own project, and learn about similar projects across the country.
The LIFT Toolkit was created by Groundswell in partnership with Clean Energy Works, Elevate, and Southface. This free online toolkit was designed to help utilities, municipalities, and solar developers establish new and expanded solar programs to serve low and moderate-income families nationwide.
