MAKING A BETTER WORLD

Installing renewable energy and helping people who help others
to make this a better world to live in. This is our legacy.

OUR SOCIAL MISSION

Giving back to our planet and to great organizations that help make this a better world.

K12 Solar, is an alternative energy company focused exclusively on bringing solar power and energy efficiency to schools, churches, credit unions, charitable organizations and other municipal and tax-exempt entities and their communities (businesses and homeowners).

We have developed a unique financing structure that allows nonprofits to install a solar system without any out-of-pocket money. Our unique structure sources funds from counties and cities via the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program and social investors. This structure allows nonprofits to monetize the extended solar tax credit.
