Simple, affordable financing options
for your nonprofit solar projects
We know you want to deploy more solar, and you want to serve your community. We can help you do both. CollectiveSun simplifies the sale and financing processes so you close more deals, help nonprofits improve their bottom line, and take care of the needs of your community and the environment.
Working with CollectiveSun helps grow your business because you’re able to provide solar to nonprofits more easily. Our Solar Power Agreement (SPA), a service agreement similar to an equipment lease, takes 12% or more off of your bid by monetizing tax credits normally denied tax exempt organizations, while you still get your 100%. We also help your nonprofit customers secure low-cost, long-term financing to fund the remaining 88%. All this means you’re offering them the best nonprofit solar financing available while you gain access to high quality leads. As social centers for their communities, nonprofits present opportunities for your company to be highlighted in front of new populations and potential customers, such as congregants at a house of worship. In addition to helping you access traditional community service based nonprofit organizations, working with CollectiveSun can open up new markets for your company including tax exempt entities such as HOAs, governments and municipalities, golf courses, country clubs, medical centers, and affordable housing.
We know that financing projects can be complicated and time-consuming. So we’ve made securing funds for a nonprofit installation as straightforward as possible. Our user-friendly process, which includes an automated intake form and standardized contract generator, allows you to quickly and easily generate an agreement for a project at any time. We also offer exceptional customer service and a streamlined process for both you and your nonprofit solar client from the initial sales conversation to project completion.
How it Works
Get things started by reaching out to our sales team! We will happily go over our financing model and requirements for nonprofit solar projects.
When you’re ready, we will provide you with a link to generate an SPA for your project that you can access at your convenience. If you have questions before presenting the SPA to your customer, let us know. We’re here to help!
We’re available to review the SPA with you before you present it to your nonprofit customer or during your conversation with them.
If the project requires nonprofit solar funding for the 88% deposit, you and your customer can talk about the available options with a CollectiveSun Account Manager. We’re happy to make introductions to lenders we have worked with and recommend. However, your 88% deposit does not have to be funded with a lender we may recommend in order to take advantage of the SPA and associated 12% savings.
The contracts and final due diligence are completed. Then Notice to Proceed (NTP) is issued and construction begins!

WHAT OUR PARTNERS IN SUSTAINABILITY HAVE TO SAY
We partnered with CollectiveSun to finance the solar project because of their unique skills and expertise in working with nonprofits. It is with great pleasure that I recommend CollectiveSun to any organization considering solar power for their facilities.
It was a genuine pleasure to work with CollectiveSun to make the switch to solar energy which will allow us to expand the vision of our church. Their expertise, professionalism, and knowledge of the industry were invaluable in making our switch to solar energy easy and affordable. I would absolutely recommend working with CollectiveSun to any church, nonprofit, or ministry seeking to go solar.
The benefit of offering an investment is that many individuals who may not be considering donations now, have another pathway to support our organization. This new style of community engagement opens the door for more people than ever before to connect with TERI and get involved with our organization.
CollectiveSun provided outreach messages and materials and a platform for our community to invest – not donate! – to our solar power project. The appeal was highly successful. We completed our CrowdLending efforts before the 40 – day campaign ended due to the great collaboration between our Center and CollectiveSun’s team members
Our team overseeing the project interviewed several firms, and ultimately chose to work with CollectiveSun. We are so glad we did! Our church chose to install a 100kW system, and we were able to save 15% on our initial installation with CollectiveSun’s proprietary funding model.
