Solar Assets Can be Structured to Give a Stable Cash Flow.
That Cash flow can support financial, social or environmental goals. A Bit Like This.
Net $200 in ten years, from a $100 investment.
Carve out $160 as a financial return, and $40 for social benefits.
Bump up financial returns, or social. The choice is yours.
We have worked with corporate and philanthropists to find and structure solar projects that deliver blended returns (financial, social, environmental).
"Here are three you may have heard about."
The Abbotsford Convent is Australia’s largest multi-arts precinct. The former "Convent of the Good Shepherd" is now owned by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF) – a not-for-profit organisation operating the Abbotsford Convent on behalf of the public. The Convent is home to over 100 studios, two galleries, cafes, a radio station, school and an abundance of green open space. Over $60,000 was raised through crowdfunding, and with corporate match-funding of $60,000 they raised sufficient funds to install a 99kW solar system. Savings will be invested in preserving the iconic Convent gardens.
St Kilda Community Housing (SCH) has provided affordable accommodation options for single people in the St Kilda area for over 25 years. Over the years SCH has worked hard to improve the quality of housing for single people. Over $25,000 was raised through crowdfunding and events, funding a solar and LED upgrade at 56 Jackson St, St Kilda. Savings on energy bills are being invested into T2M - a property maintenance social enterprise which trains and employs people at risk of homelessness.
Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC) is a community-engaged, contemporary arts centre working with local, regional and international communities. Combining a mix of crowdfunding, corporate support, philanthropic giving and government grants, they raised $100,000 for solar, battery storage and LED lighting upgrades. Over $15,000 will be saved on energy bills each year, and invested in their community arts program "Call to create".
