Project Description

Project / Program Description

Our goal is to make renewable energy affordable for low-income people and non-profits. We are planning to have people who want job training do the installations for the low-income people and non-profits. This way, we cut labor costs, and people get free or affordable training. We are also hoping to get seed funding in order to further cut costs, and we will explore other funding options as well. We have found several companies who say they will also give us discounts to support our efforts. We are hoping that this model can be scaled nationwide in which students get job training and low-income people and non-profits get deep discounts on solar panels.
