Vote Solar may be best known for our work advocating for state-level policy, but we’ve also been hard at work helping tackle solar soft costs head on through our GroupEnergy program. Our take on the solarize community purchasing model focuses on helping existing groups — think coworkers, clubs or congregations — pool their collective buying power to go solar at home.
We’ve seen particularly strong interest from major employers who want to take sustainability beyond the boardroom and into their broader communities. Participating companies get to offer a great employee benefit (solar), the employees get to navigate the process of going solar together (making it easier and more affordable), and the solar industry gets to serve a group of customers at once, reducing those nefarious customer acquisition soft costs. It builds solar awareness and lowers solar’s price tag in one fell swoop.
”You have a great project and need funding? You have a business with the potential for above average return on investment and need finance for growth? We structure a financial solution for your project, or any of your financial transactions.”
Upon receipt of your professional project presentation, we will perform brief financial analyses. If your project qualifies, we will present it to the funding committee. Download these guidelines (below) to properly present your venture. If your project qualifies, we will request your business plan and have a look at the due diligence and an independent audit. If your project appears further feasible, we will suggest a funding strategy!
We take an Investor’s Approach
We only take on projects that we would invest in ourselves. Our team has the scope and capability to accommodate projects in countries large and small around the world. Our well versed areas of expertise include Feasibility Studies, Technical Reviews, Due Diligence, Financial Engineering, Project Management, and Administration Overviews. With the current challenges faced by the global economy, let our experts provide the answers and demonstrate our ability to exceed your expectations. We have Private Money Funds as well as our own funds which allow us a great deal of flexibility in offering non-traditional funding programs. We also maintain close relations with government and institutional Project Funders worldwide.
To qualify, and for us to determine if there is potential interest in funding your project, we need to instantly understand your requirements. Get the facts to the point. How much your company seeks to borrow and how it intends servicing the debt and over what period? Also, if your company has already invested funds and the percentage this represents from total costs. Moreover, do you have liquid cash or hard assets available to be used as equity contribution to your project? All these key issues have to be addressed and briefly answered if you wish to present your project for funding to the financial network of Selective Financial Services. We have made this first step simple for you and prepared the Project Funding Overview, a guide to professionally structure your initial presentation.
