Solar Crowdfunding and the Sierra Club

courtesy of sunfunder 1.3 billion people around the world live in darkness with no access to electricity. Solar crowdfunding through partners like SunFunder empowers us to help them and the climate at the same time. These portals aggregate small 'crowdsourced' loans to finance clean energy entrepreneurs and projects. SunFunder has a new project with Fenix International that will provide 375 villagers with solar energy in Uganda and power off-grid wireless communications for nearly 4,000 people. Deploying this clean energy will generate over $100,000 in village income over the next 3 years, increasing poor household income by 36.4% while eliminating 15,000 liters of kerosene and 37 tons of CO2. Check out their project.
