Our success is your success.

In 2008, not long after we’d heard Van Jones speak about the coming Green Collar Economy at the Academy of Natural Sciences, we launched with a dual-mission to educate and install. We knew that, in order to accomplish our objective of making the rise of solar a benefit to ALL in our communities, we had to design a business model that wasn’t industry standard.

Here is a quick overview of our model, and the outputs it has produced for our diverse array of communities in the Philadelphia region. This model is impossible without long-term, healthy partnerships with local institutions and community leaders. We’ve had A LOT of help along the way.

Dan’s installation and the 800+ others we have developed since 2008 have enabled this model to thrive. Thank you, Dan!!!
