Why Choose Solar?
Solar allows non-profits to not only reduce their utility power bill, but also provides predictable, reliable, contracted power for 15 or more years.
SCF specializes in working with non-profits, financing development, design, procurement & construction of solar systems. SCF provides 15+ year term Power Purchase Agreements, locking in the cost of power for the long term. System ownership is removed from a non-profit’s responsibility; associated tax benefits are monetized, thereby allowing for a lower cost of energy being passed through to the non-profit
SCF utilizes the Solar Access to Public Capital (SAPC) Commercial PPA for all of its projects, which is an industry standard PPA. This reduces project transaction costs, permitting SCF to offer better terms to energy consumers.

Benefits of solar for non-profits:
The Boys and Girls Club of San Diego is home to two new solar arrays, totaling 165 kW, financed by Sustainable Capital Finance (SCF). The new arrays are both roof-mounted and carport-mounted and are estimated to offset for more than 80 percent of the school’s energy charges.
“I’m proud we could make it work.” Steve Campbell, Project Manager, was talking about the challenges of financing a small system, as well as the mixed mounting types. “It presented some unique challenges for financing because we needed structural engineering for the roofs and carport, as well as geotechnical investigations and land surveys.” Typically, these costs present a hurdle too difficult to jump for most energy financiers, but streamlined process and reduced project costs has enabled it to take advantage of an untapped portion of the market.
“Dealing with credit underwriting, property law, and title insurance before the system is even constructed requires multi-tooled subject matter experts –which is a testament to the SCF team.”
