It used to be that one needed to be a homeowner and have money to install solar panels to participate in the global shift to solar from coal. Fortunately, that is no longer the case. Thanks to a number of new clean energy crowdfunding websites, anyone can now participate in the solar energy transformation by investing their money in solar projects located in the U.S. and abroad. Some investment platforms even offer returns on investment, making it a smart way for people to earn green by going green. Here are a few companies driving the crowdfunding movement that’s poised to accelerate the growth of solar globally:

Mosaic (US)

Mosaic is disrupting the way solar in the U.S. gets financed. The company’s crowdfunding platform allows both accredited and non-accredited investors to finance small-scale solar projects across America. Through these projects, the Mosaic community has placed solar panels on bee farms, charter schools, convention centers, and military housing across the country. Currently Mosaic’s investments are limited to residents of California or accredited investors who are residents of the United States.

RE-volv (US)

RE-volv has a revolving solar energy fund called the Solar Seed Fund that finances community-based solar energy systems for nonprofits and cooperatives in the U.S. For example, a community center leases solar equipment from RE-volv for 20 years, during which time the cost of the solar installation, plus a small fee, is recouped by RE-volv.  RE-volv continually reinvests this money back into the Solar Seed Fund to serve more communities with solar energy.  This allows RE-volv to finance 3 to 5 additional solar energy projects from the proceeds of every project we finance.  You can contribute to the Solar Seed Fund by donating here.
