The impact multiplier compares the carbon avoidance Renewables.org enables to U.S. based 'green investing' alternatives.
Low Construction Costs
Construction costs are half U.S. prices — we fund twice the solar per dollar.
Dirty Power Grids
Coal dependent grids have twice the carbon intensity, expanding your impact.
Access to Credit
Capital availability is scarce, without you, our projects wouldn't get built.
With Rooftop dashboard, monitor the carbon avoidance and repayments of the panels° you collect around the world.
Renewables.org has funded dozens of solar facilities in emerging markets like India and Africa. The proceeds of each panel° you collect enable us to build additional solar facilities and accelerate solar adoption.
I helped found Kiva.org because I saw an injustice. In the global south, $25 can be transformative to a family – but to fortunate people abroad like me, $25 was pocket change. Kiva leveraged this difference to catalyze the microfinance industry.
Learning about solar finance, I saw a similar inequity. Solar deployment struggles to find financing in emerging markets. Yet small solar investments can have outsized carbon impact.
In fact, you can avoid nearly 20 times the carbon investing in emerging market solar than you would in the U.S.
Renewables.org allows you to do just that – purchasing panels° enables us to build solar infrastructure where it does the most good.
If we shine a light on this disparity and provide the tools to solve it, I bet millions of you will step forward. We did it with Kiva and microfinance, and we can do it again with Renewables.org.
