RVA Solar Fund
The RVA Solar Fund, a donor-advised fund at The Community Foundation, is seeking grant applications from local governments and school systems in the greater Richmond region to fund transitions to solar energy.
This grant initiative was developed after a group of donors approached The Community Foundation to learn more about the solar landscape in the Richmond region. After several sessions together, they collaborated to establish a donor advised fund that will provide grants up to $100,000 to support the administrative costs of going solar.
This grant program will serve as a catalyst for the installation of 15,000 solar panels, or 5 megawatts of clean power through a Power Purchase Agreement with our selected partner, Secure Futures, a Certified B Corp. Grant recipients will also enjoy no capital costs, no maintenance obligations, and guaranteed savings while reducing C02 emissions.
Interested applicants must submit a Notice of Interest by November 17, 2017
. This notice creates a point of contact and identifies potential sites for solar power installations. Entities who submit a notice will receive a preliminary technical review and those with good solar power potential will be invited to submit a full application.
