Putting the Power in Your Hands

Bright Minds Solar facilitates the installation of solar energy systems on educational facilities. The purpose is to provide clean power to those facilities and to lower their costs, so that less money is spent on energy and more on education. We provide financing for the solar systems, and work with industry partners to provide a turnkey solution, including installation and maintenance, so your facility can be converted to solar power with minimal effort—and no upfront capital costs. Bright Minds attracts outside capital to fund the system costs, thereby creating opportunities for individual or institutional investors who wish to engage in socially or environmentally responsible investing.
