Enphase Energy, the leading microinverter technology provider, has donated over 100 microinverters and accessories to the Wildlife Associates project in Half Moon Bay. This in-kind donation will help significantly lower the cost of the project and pushes Everybody Solar past 18 percent of their fundraising goal. 

"Giving back to our local community is important to Enphase and our employees," said Jeff Loebbaka, senior vice president of global sales, marketing and support at Enphase. "Our collaborative effort with Everybody Solar will help bring clean energy to Wildlife Associates and reduce electricity costs so more resources can be directed toward the organization's animal-care and education programs."

We all know that solar power confers many benefits, both financial and environmental. San Francisco-based nonprofit Everybody Solar takes that a step further by crowdfunding solar projects for nonprofit groups that traditionally can’t afford or finance solar. That allows the nonprofits to put more resources into their mission.

For its latest project, Everybody Solar is compounding these benefits by using solar power to help care for animals at a wildlife sanctuary.

“It takes the hood to save the hood” states a large billboard near the corner of Van Ness and Market in San Francisco.

The solution starts with good education.

Andreas Karelas and Youness Scally, founders of RE-volv and Everybody Solar, have been busy. Since founding their solar crowdfunding nonprofits in 2011, they’ve shown that their ideas are more than just ideas by making actual projects happen.

A lot has happened since Rosana Francescato spoke with Scally and Karelas last summer about their successful launches. Both organizations completed their first projects last year and are on to the next ones.
