Municipal and Nonprofit Solar Financing through CEI

Coastal Enterprises Inc Solar Loans ReVision Energy has partnered with CEI (Coastal Enterprises Inc.) to finance nonprofit and municipal solar projects through our Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) program.

Municipal, educational and non-profit entities are ineligible for Federal tax incentives which are spurring development of solar energy projects nationwide. With the ReVision Solar PPA, non-profit organizations can overcome that barrier and immediately reap the rewards of clean, renewable solar electric power. Our Solar PPA offers competitive energy pricing and green benefits without the upfront expense or on-going maintenance cost of owning or leasing a solar facility.

Norway, Maine - Solar Hot Water and Solar Power

From the moment my system began producing power I felt paid back. I have taken a step to lessen Maine's fossil fuel consumption. For me, the final decision was easy, and I have never looked back.

Thank you to all the folks at Revision Energy for working toward saving the planet one solar panel at a time!
