Our co-founders developed unique skills in infrastructure finance on Wall Street with large firms. Because of the rampant infrastructure and energy deficits in our communities globally, we wanted to use these skills to empower our communities. Our mission is to empower communities to take control of their energy using their resources. We want to work with local communities and businesses to develop self-sustaining community renewable energy projects. Our programs are designed to give those who cannot easily install renewable energy an opportunity to participate in renewable projects. We want to offer this partnership to local governments for low-income solar initiatives and multi-family affordable housing. Our vision is to reduce the global carbon footprint by reducing inefficiencies and financing the energy transition from fossil fuel to clean energy, while transforming the electricity grid to disrupt large-scale utilities through microgrids.
