Give-Solar

If a community-powered solar project could work for one nonprofit, we thought, why not for others? And so Give Solar was born.

50 by 25 Clean Energy for All

The 50 by 25 campaign originated in compassion for the earth and our neighbors, and moving toward a clean energy transition can help build a sustainable future. We are a group of Harrisonburg residents and neighbors based out of Renew Rocktown. The campaign is a call for the city to take action on climate change, increase renewable energy, and make home energy costs affordable through energy efficiency programs. We also want to promote a cultural shift that encourages individual creative actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and overall consumption and increase community participation and empowerment.
