The UNSDGS was signed by every country on the planet and went into force on January 1, 2016 with the idea that the UNSDGS applies to all. Affordable Clean Energy is one of the main principles of the UNSDGS, yet the United States remains far behind many other OECD nations in terms of clean energy proliferation, with less than a 2% penetration rate of solar energy use as of the end of 2016. In order for the world to reach its commitment, the United States as one of the world’s largest consumers of energy must bring many more Solar Projects online.
At its current rate of expansion the United States is currently not on track to reach its goals under the UNSDGS regarding “Clean and Affordable Energy” by 2030.
Solar Equity Group has created a sustainable funding mechanism that directly benefits 11 of the 17 Global Goals. Following a business model that uses practical economics, SEG aims to increase the odds of the United States reaching its goals in regards to clean energy and its commitments under the UNSDGS by the year 2030.
