According to a recent survey by ImagePower, over 60% of consumers consider sustainability to be a key purchasing factor. Despite the growth and profit potential of the green economy, it has often been difficult for businesses to break into the industry.That is, until now.

Solar Mosaic, an innovative solar finance company, just launched its first project in Oakland, CA to connect those who want to invest in solar with community organizations who can benefit from solar. Often people can’t go solar because of the high upfront costs or because their roofs aren’t suited for it. By allowing individuals and businesses to invest in “Tiles,” $100 shares of a solar project in their community, Solar Mosaic is making the benefits of solar accessible to more people.

Oakland Solar Mosaic will create over 140 kW of solar (enough to power 28 homes) on the roofs of organizations across Oakland that serve low-income communities. In addition, the projects will create jobs, help valuable community organizations save an estimated $350,000 on their utility bills and repay all investors. Through our online platform, Solar Mosaic has already raised more than half the funds needed for their first solar project on the Asian Resource Center, a thriving non-profit center in the heart of Oakland’s Chinatown.

This project presents an incredible opportunity for businesses in the Bay Area to support community solar in Oakland and reap the benefits of the green economy.  In addition to recouping all your initial investment over the duration of the solar payback period (typically 8 years), you will receive marketing support in the form of Solar Mosaic’s Solar Business Pack and Rewards Program to drive more eco-minded customers to your business.

To find out more about how your business can get involved with Solar Mosaic’s first project please visit www.solarmosaic.com or email ankur(at)solarmosaic(dot)com
