And the best parts of this campaign?
At least 2 solar systems, valued at $20,000 each and donated by AES Solar, will be installed on an eligible nonprofit.
When you give to this Coal2Sol campaign, you can "dedicate" your donation to your favorite nonprofit to be the beneficiary of a $20,000 solar system. Each dollar donated counts as a point.

Even if we don't raise the $3,000 or get the $100,000 grant, the 2 donated solar systems will still be installed!
The goals at this stage are to:
