SiteCapture, a company that creates cloud software to streamline field operations for the solar, single-family residential, and construction industries, has made a donation to the organization Vote Solar.
Since 2002, Vote Solar has advocated for clean, renewable energy at the state level. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit provides educational resources for the public, works to expand affordable solar access, and advocates for policy reform.
“Vote Solar’s work to drive clean energy adoption for all people and communities is something we strongly believe in and aligns with what we believe in,” says Kamal Shah, founder and CEO of SiteCapture.
Vote Solar has five main policy priorities:
- Access and Equity: Pollution concerns disproportionately affect communities of color and low-wealth communities. Vote Solar works toward making clean energy solutions affordable for these groups.
- Rooftop Solar: Vote Solar’s goal is that 50% of all energy will be solar. To make that happen, they remove logistical obstacles and lower costs for families, companies, and schools.
- Community Solar: Some individuals and companies can’t currently opt for traditional rooftop solar because they rent or have a low credit rating. Vote Solar works toward making solar a reality for them by providing access to community solar facilities.
- Utility-Scale Solar: On a larger scale, utilities can use solar to supply power to their customers. On their end, Vote Solar advocates for utility procurement programs.
- Grid Modernization: For solar to take off in the U.S., a full-scale grid overhaul is needed. Vote Solar promotes investment in clean energy over power plants at the policy level.
SiteCapture is excited to contribute to Vote Solar’s mission to create a cleaner, more sustainable future for all.
“Battling climate change is one of the most important endeavors we have as a society,” Shah says. “We are proud to be doing our part to drive efficiencies in the solar industries and faster scale in the deployment of solar.”
