Solterra Support: Donation Matching for Change

Being an active part in the fight for positive change is nothing new for Solterra Solar; the current events are no exception. Solterra Solar is vehemently against racism and we openly support the movement to demand justice and accountability. We will not stay silent, choosing instead to make a stand for what is right. We are committing to a significant financial donation in June to local and national social justice organizations who are making an impact. For us, words and actions are different things. This is why we have decided to use our voice and resources to help turn the people’s momentum into funds and action for change. For every solar panel purchased in June 2020, Solterra will donate $20 to one or more of the social justice organizations listed below. Participating clients may elect which organization they wish support, with funds being equally distributed if there is no preference. In addition to the $20 per panel commitment, we will match additional generosity until our goal has been met. We have set aside $10,000 for these organizations to match the donations of clients, employees, and members of our community. It is our intention to raise awareness, as well as encourage generosity with the knowledge that your contribution will be multiplied.   Donations will be sent to one or more of the following organizations: Black Lives Matter – Seattle Chapter BLM is a thriving social organization founded by three black women. The group acts as a watchdog on policies ranging from police reform to COVID-19 information, distributes resources, and funds Black artists. Go Fund Me, organized by local Attorney Sade Smith of Smith Law LLC Offering Pro Bono legal support for protestors. Campaign Zero A think-tank advocating for data-backed criminal justice and policing policies. Their latest campaign, #8cantwait, uses data to prove that by adopting eight policies, we can decrease police violence by 72%. Color of Change Organizes social media campaigns and petitions to expose and demand justice on incidents of racial injustice, hold corporate and political leaders accountable, and commission research on systems of inequality. Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) Works to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment, and racial inequality. EJI provides legal representation to...

Solar Giving for the Holidays

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Always free and always informative, our home consultations will help you decide if solar is right for you… But that’s not all, we want to help further your impact by looking into solar for your home. That’s why for every solar consultation we complete between Nov 15th and Dec 31st, SolTerra will provide 100 meals to local families in need through NorthwestHarvest.org, and if you decide to move forward with solar we will double our contribution to 200 meals. We will also be donating our time as a team to help with food packaging and distribution at their new SODO Community Market. Because our donation window closes Dec 31, we will be providing funds when local food banks typically have a greater need, in other words after the holiday season has come to a close for most. Our goal is to personally contribute 7000 meals to Northwest Harvest’s overall goal of providing more than 22 million meals per year to our neighbors in need here in Washington State. A shiny new solar system AND helping those in need? What more could you ask for! Our consultations are always free, so if you have been thinking about whether solar is right for your home, now is the best time to find out! Sign up for a free solar consultation, harvest solar with SolTerra, and help stop hunger in the Pacific Northwest. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...
