Nearly 80% of American households are unable to install rooftop solar. The reasons for their exclusion vary, from the eligibility of the individual rooftop, to homeownership status, to one’s access to financing. Solstice was founded on the belief that every household can be powered by affordable renewable energy, and found community solar to be the answer. They educate and connect communities to local solar gardens, create financial innovations that expand access to all Americans, and provide a seamless digital platform for customer management. Their innovative model allows households to subscribe to a local solar farm without installations or upfront costs and see savings of approximately 10% on their electric bill. With over 2,000 customers, Solstice is bringing more affordable, clean energy for a greener future for all.

Notable Achievements

  • 25+ community solar projects in New York and Massachusets.
  • Recently raised funding from Total Carbon Neutrality Ventures and American Family Insitute to continue expansion across the U.S.
  • Currently serving a network of 20,000 customers across New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Washington D.C.
