SOLSOLUTION via Crowdrise
October 05, 2011
We officially raised the full amount to complete the Aruna's Place installation, our first solar school installation! Thanks to our friends at New Generation Energy and their super powers of donation doubling, we collected the rest of the funds over the course of two separate summer afternoons online.
You can continue to donate to our other projects and events to help us reach even more schools across MA.

SolSolution is a non-profit organization created to address inequalities in education and energy supply by installing solar panels in schools and reinvesting energy profits back into their educational budgets. This makes it both easy and financially feasible for local schools to use solar energy at no initial cost, allowing us to address the blatant social and environmental issues threatening our future. For more information on SolSolution as an organization, please visit our charity page: www.crowdrise.com/solsolution1 or our direct website: www.sol-solution.org.
We are currently fundraising for our pilot installation at Aruna’s Place, a preschool in Sudbury, MA. The preschool owner, Aruna Pundit signed a Letter of Intent with SolSolution in July of 2010 agreeing to participate in our educational power purchase agreement (E-PPA) model and install solar photo-voltaic panels on her school. The final product will be a 3.4 kW photovoltaic system, the power from which will be sold back to Aruna’s Place at a reduced and fixed rate. With our E-PPA, the monetary profits from the energy generated at Aruna’s Place will be used to give much-needed educational grants to low-income schools that join our model in the future.
We are currently working with the Massachusetts solar contracting company Alteris Renewables, and so far we’ve raised $8,000 out of the $21,000 needed to cover the project costs. In addition to individual contributions, we're also raising money through some fun upcoming events. To learn more, check out SolSolution's Events page at: www.crowdrise.com/solsolution.
Amassing this money is the last step toward implementing the E-PPA model at Aruna's Plkace, and 100% of your contribution will go toward purchasing and installing the panels on the school's roof. Please help us on our mission to give children cleaner energy and better education!
