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 sales 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. The CollectiveSun Solar Loan is designed to support your nonprofit customer’s purchase of a solar system while allowing them to benefit directly from the Direct Pay Tax Rebate; exploring leasing options like our CollectiveSun Solar Lease is an “easy button” solution for nonprofits who prefer to benefit from the savings generated by going solar while mitigating ownership risks. Our CollectiveSun Solar Power Agreement (the SPA), is a service agreement, similar to an equipment lease, that takes 16% or more off of the installer’s bid by using a third party to monetize tax credits, while still providing the installer 100% of the installation cost. The SPA is a hybrid solution that works well for entities without a tax appetite looking for a way to benefit from a portion of the tax benefits. We also help your nonprofit customers secure low-cost, long-term financing to fund the remaining 84% or less. All this means you’re offering your customers 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 allows you to focus on what you do best. 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.
