Solar For NonProfits

Keeping the lights on is a major concern for many nonprofits in California. With some of the most expensive electricity rates in the country, California nonprofits spend a significant amount of time trying to manage electricity costs that keep climbing, all while trying to carry out their mission to serve the community.

Installing solar panels on your nonprofit property is a decision with tangible benefits. When you are ready to upgrade to solar energy, turn to TENCO SOLAR.

Advantages Of Solar Energy For Nonprofit Organizations

California nonprofits that switch to energy generated by solar panels will enjoy three key benefits that make the investment worth it:

Beat Rising Costs

Electricity is consistently becoming more expensive and a bigger burden for nonprofits. Going solar means having predictable energy costs and not having to build increases into budgets that are already tight.

Improve Optics

Going solar can improve an organization’s reputation in the community and regionally. Overall, the commitment to sustainability may become a long-term booster of donations.

Incentives For Nonprofits Going Solar

The greatest barrier to California nonprofits switching to solar is funding the project on tight budgets. Until recently, a lack of tax liability prevented nonprofits from receiving the federal tax incentive for solar — but that has changed. Since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), nonprofits now qualify for a 30% credit for the total cost of the system.

Nonprofits are also able to qualify for additional savings, including:

  • 10% for systems installed on tribal land or in low-income areas.

  • 10% for systems installed in qualified Energy Communities, including all of Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Solano, Sutter, Ventura, and Yuba counties.

  • 10% for systems that are built with domestic content.
