Clean Air... Clean Water... Clean Energy

In furtherance of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Our commitment to sustainability

Solar Equity Group has adopted the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGS), also known internationally as the Global Goals, and exists in furtherance of these principles.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

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 financing opportunity following a business model that will increase the odds of the United States reaching its goals in regards to clean energy, as well as its commitments under the UNSDGS by the year 2030.

America's commitment

In 2005 the Bush administration made a commitment to the American public of having 20% of America powered by clean energy by the year 2030. Then, in 2009 Obama added fuel to that fire by making significant changes to the tax code allowing renewable energy funding specifically for the tax benefit. This has paved the way for significant advancement of the infrastructure.
See 2016 Renewable Energy Status Report here.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act became the largest contribution to renewable energy in history by funneling approximately $150 Billion in private capital between 2009-2011 directly to clean energy infrastructure through tax based incentives. Since then congress has given bipartisan support of various tax incentive programs to continue funding a new smarter power grid, and Solar Equity Group is helping achieve this by connecting American businesses and taxpayers with our solar project tax incentives. These solar projects are 100% funded by exchanging our solar tax incentives to 3rd party taxpayers.

Approved, then re-approved

In June of 2015, the US Senate approved an expansive energy bill with an 11-year, $18.6 billion package of energy tax breaks with a renewed focus towards renewable energy resources and conservation. Tax credits were introduced for various renewable energy technologies and are transferable to individuals or businesses, acting as a self-funding mechanism for solar energy companies. By monetizing these tax benefits Solar Equity Group is able to continue funding projects without the use of loans or private capital.

Wall Street approved

These types of tax equity exchanges and tax benefits are used regularly by many banks and large companies like Google, Bank of America, AIG, Wal-Mart and PayPal, and Starbucks just to name a few.

Expected by the IRS

The IRS has already accounted for this tax equity, and they expect these tax incentives to be used by someone or some company. As long as the exchange is set up properly, and handled by licensed tax professionals it is business as normal to the IRS, and a boost to the congressional agenda. There is no money lost for the government, and we are helping the government advance their promise to the American public of having the nation powered by at least 20% clean energy by the year 2030.
