Workshop: New Solar Opportunities for Virginia Organizations

6:30 pm – Tour of MVUC’s 25 kw solar panels, snacks, and fellowship
7:00 pm – Solar Workshop for Northern Virginia nonprofits
Why have so many more organizations outside of Virginia been able to “go solar” than have done so here in the Commonwealth?
These nonprofits didn’t purchase the expensive equipment themselves, and do not own the equipment now. But their states permitted them to pay a private entity, which owns the panels on their roofs, for the use of the power they are generating.
Now, thanks to a new state law which takes effect July 1st, nonprofit organizations in Virginia will have access to the same “no money down” solar financing arrangements — called Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) — that have driven so many successful climate-friendly energy projects at community organizations in DC, Maryland, and beyond.
Join Interfaith Power and Light (MD.DC.NoVA) and the Sierra Club at one of Northern Virginia’s pioneering solar congregations for a free workshop on new solar opportunities for Virginia nonprofits. Come learn how your organizations can take advantage of exciting new opportunities to generate clean energy “from heaven”!
