Mission

Organized with the goal to create the first “ net zero green zone” in a low-moderate income community in California to demonstrate that such communities with the proper partners can sustain and launch financial viable community solar projects and jobs that provide a positive return on investment for investors as well as reduce kW usage and provide low income communities and non-profits with financial relief in ever escalating energy bills.

Vision

To employ an innovative turn-key services platform for community solar projects that eliminates the economic hurdles of installing solar in LMICs including solar brokerage, community development, group buying, solar financing and project crowd sourcing. Together, SOS and ECSMC have established partnerships with key Northern California-based nonprofits to provide oversight for solar installation in affordable housing and non-profit owned buildings, such as senior centers, hospitals, and schools located in the severely underserved LMIC in Oakland, the initial beta test area.

Solar-Oversight

Solar- OverSight (SOS) will utilize a collaborative platform in partnership with El Concilio of San Mateo County (ECSMC) , also a 501C3. SOS will take the lead on engaging all members of this highly innovative public/ private partnership that will target a specific area to become a “net zero green zone” in the highly underserved low and moderate income communities (LMIC) and non profits within Oakland.SOS will employ an innovative turn-key services platform for community solar projects that eliminates the economic hurdles of installing solar in LMICs including solar brokerage, community development, group buying, solar financing and project crowd sourcing.
