Groundswell builds community power.

 

Groundswell builds people-centered solar projects that deliver energy equity and economic opportunity. From project development to project finance, and from construction to customer enrollment and support, we focus on the “community” in community solar. Our solar projects leverage private capital for social good – providing real investment, good jobs, locally generated clean power, and deep energy savings to our neighbors who need it the most.

Groundswell’s Share Power TM program is revolutionizing community solar by eliminating barriers like long-term contracts and high consumer credit scores. Share Power TM has the potential to double the addressable market for community solar and deliver deep savings to people who need it the most. Inspired by Human Centered Design and the challenge to “love your neighbor as yourself,” renters and homeowners who join a Groundswell solar project get locally generated power and share savings with local income-qualified households. Groundswell and Share Power TM preserve affordability for all neighbors and helps communities thrive.

Groundswell builds community power by connecting solar power with economic empowerment and putting people first. We believe that clean energy is a necessity, not a luxury; we’re all in this together; and we can’t afford to leave our neighbors behind.
