How Harbor House Will Utilize Their Solar Savings
By going solar with RE-volv, Harbor House will save more than $102,000 off the cost of their electricity bills over the life of the solar system. With these savings, Harbor House will have more capital they can use to invest into their programs.
Community Effort to Bring Solar to Harbor House
Harbor House went solar with RE-volv for $0 down, allowing Harbor House to go solar without needing to divert money from their programs to do so. Through a 20-year Solar Lease, Harbor House will pay back RE-volv each month for their solar system. As Harbor House pays back RE-volv, their monthly payments will be invested into the Solar Seed Fund, a revolving fund for solar used to bring more solar to amazing community-serving nonprofits across the country.
