Community RenewablesCommunity / shared renewables

Community-funded renewable projects allow your customers to support the development of a single, collaboratively-funded system that is owned by your business or another third party. Your customers can purchase a portion of the capacity of your system in exchange for either an energy or monetary credit. This significantly reduces up-front capital costs while giving customers the opportunity to directly invest in the development of local renewable energy projects.

As an expert in community renewables project development, utility interconnection, community engagement and project financing, BEF provides comprehensive project support, matching grant programs and other services to reduce barriers to entry and optimize project success.

Community Funded Renewables

Solarize

For many of your customers, the most significant barriers to adding a photovoltaic system to their home are the up front cost, lack of knowledge about the technology and low confidence in solar installation companies. Solarize helps to eliminate these barriers via a community-wide bulk purchasing program—the cost per home is reduced and participants have the confidence of working with preselected certified installers.

BEF works in partnership with your business or utility to promote the program to your customers while we help you manage the RFP process to attract expert installers. A Solarize program can help your customers understand and appreciate the real value of your renewable energy commitment.
