The general public hears a lot about the benefits of solar and other forms of ‘renewable energy’. Solar, in particular, seems like common sense: it’s sunny, we know we can turn the sun into electricity, so why aren’t we doing it?


The biggest issue with the cost of solar versus the cost of non-renewable sources of electricity is scale and infrastructure. Coal, natural gas, and hydroelectric power plants, with their large energy and carbon footprints, are massive industrial complexes and systems that have been developed through decades, often with large subsidies.

San Francisco, CA – March 24, 2015 – Today Everybody Solar, an award-winning solar energy nonprofit, announces that JinkoSolar and All Points North Foundation (APNF) have stepped up to bring solar to fellow Bay Area nonprofit Wildlife Associates. In September, Everybody Solar kicked off a crowdsourced fundraising campaign to bring a solar array to Wildlife Associates and cut their electric bill by 90%. These donations pushed the campaign past its goal of $78,500, allowing construction on the 27 kW solar array to commence. The hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings will support the organization’s mission of wildlife conservation and education.

San Francisco nonprofit Everybody Solar is on a roll with its latest project — bringing solar to nonprofit Wildlife Associates, a wildlife sanctuary and children’s educational nonprofit in Half Moon Bay, California. The solar array will save Wildlife Associates enough to teach an additional 5,000 kids each year about wildlife and science.

Since the project’s announcement in September, Everybody Solar has added some key partners to the effort. Microinverter provider Enphase Energy donated over 100 microinverters and accessories, significantly lowering the project cost. That contribution took Everybody Solar past 18% of its crowdfunding goal for Wildlife Associates.
