Transaction sparks relationship between social enterprise and clean energy leaders

SAN FRANCISCORSF Social Finance (RSF) is pleased to announce that it has purchased $9 million in solar bonds from clean energy leader SolarCity, which launched its public bond offering to individual consumers in October.

The investment in SolarCity solar bonds is a strong strategic match with RSFs mission of transforming the way the world works with money. RSF is a San Francisco-based organization that lends money to path-breaking social enterprises, provides impact investing vehicles accessible to a wide range of investors, manages grant funds, and works to build a finance infrastructure that will allow social enterprises to thrive.

RSF is proud to directly support SolarCitys work in renewable energy, said Don Shaffer, president and CEO of RSF. This contributes to our goal of employing all our assets to create social and environmental benefits. It also is in line with our effort to democratize impact investing. Like RSFs Social Investment Fund, SolarCitys solar bonds are available to individual investors with a minimum $1,000 investment. Were happy to add capital to a fund that offers this opportunity.

Were extremely pleased to have RSF Social Finance join the growing number of investorsincluding both institutions and individualswho are getting paid by the sun with SolarCitys solar bonds, said Tim Newell, SolarCitys vice president of financial products. RSFs investment in solar bonds is the latest example of their leadership as an institution in defining the future of impact investing. Were proud to help RSF and their investors achieve their mission.

RSF favors investments with broad impact. Solar panels, in contrast with conventional natural gas, nuclear and coal power plants, require no water to produce electricity, create no air pollution, and emit no greenhouse gases. The solar industry is also a prodigious job creatorin 2014 it created jobs nearly 20 times faster than the overall U.S. economy. SolarCity, the largest solar employer in the U.S., has added more than 6,000 jobs in the past year.

RSF purchased the majority of the bonds with its liquidity fund, a largely cash reserve that holds donor advised funds awaiting grant-making. Impact investors have limited options for investing these types of funds, so solar bonds are welcome option. RSFs solar bond purchase will yield a weighted annual return of 2.61% and help diversify its investment portfolio.

The solar bonds provide an opportunity for RSF and like-minded individuals and organizations to earn an attractive financial return while helping SolarCity expand its use of the suns clean energy to reduce our societys dependence on fossil fuels for power generation, said Joe Avenatti, RSFs senior director of investments. We look forward to exploring additional ways for our two organizations to work together.

SolarCitys previously self-funded foundation now accepting public donations, expects to light an additional 1,000 schools by the end of 2015

SolarCity GivePower Foundation

Aug 12, 2015

San Mateo, Calif. GivePower Foundationa charitable non-profit organization that addresses energy poverty by providing solar-powered lighting to schools in the developing worldis expanding. Through a $500,000 donation from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation, GivePower Foundation now plans to provide light to an additional 1,000 schools, totaling more than 1,500 schools by the end of 2015. In 2014, GivePower Foundation donated solar powered lighting to 511 schools in Africa and Central America, exceeding its first year goal to provide light to a school in a developing country for each megawatt of solar power it installs in the United States. The GivePower Foundation, established with funding that came entirely from SolarCity in 2014, will begin to accept public donations in 2015.

GivePower Foundation donates solar panels, batteries and lighting to schools to extend classroom hours in the early morning and evening, and create a night time gathering place in communities that often lack basic access to electricity. The solar panels can also power cell phones and other small electronic devices throughout the day. This donation is part of Bank of Americas commitment to environmental philanthropy focused on carbon emission reductions, access to clean water and research and innovation. The $500,000 grant will support hundreds of school lighting projects as well as solar training, research and development in off-grid communities.

We are extremely grateful for Bank of America Charitable Foundations generous donation to GivePower, said Hayes Barnard, SolarCitys Chief Revenue Officer and GivePower Foundation President. With this commitment, we are able to expand our program, bringing light to even more schools and communities in need.

This years GivePower Foundation projects will bring light to remote villages in Mali, Nicaragua, Kenya, Haiti, Uganda, Nigeria, Malawi, Nepal, and Ghana. As a 501(c)(3) public charity, the foundation is now accepting donations to help it bring light to even more schools and communities in need. Approximately 291 million children around the world attend primary schools without electricity, and 1.3 billion people around the world live without electricity.*

Education is vital to empowering communities and forming tomorrows leaders, and we are excited to play a role in ensuring these schools have lighting for the first time, said Anne Finucane, vice chairman and global chief strategy and marketing officer at Bank of America. Our new partnership with GivePower Foundation is bringing clean energy to the developing world and is part of our broader strategy to help finance the transition to lower-carbon economies.

For every megawatt of solar power SolarCity installs, the foundation makes a donation of light to one school in need. GivePower, and all those who support it, also helps provide resources to train local residents to install and maintain systems, and to gain and share knowledge with surrounding communities. Access to power allows schools to increase the number and type of classes they offer, attract and retain teachers, and access vast educational resources on the Internet.
