This Foundation expands our mission of reducing carbon emission in Central Ohio by making the switch to clean energy as easy as possible.
Starting in 2020, Ecohouse Solar will support this Foundation by giving 5% of our net profit to the Foundation each year. The Foundation also welcomes donations from anyone or any organization that want to support the adaption of solar energy for low income people in the Central Ohio area.
The Columbus Foundation makes giving easy. All you have to do is to click on the Ecohouse Solar Foundation link, and follow the instructions. Ecohouse Solar customers can make a gift when they purchase a solar electric system installation from Ecohouse Solar.
In early 2021 Ecohouse Solar completed a solar project in Newark, Ohio, partially funded through the Foundation. The homeowner was Mr. Peter R., who recently completed his home through Mid-Ohio Habitat for Humanity. The Ecohouse Solar Foundation gave the homeowner a $5000 discount off of the total cost of a 4 KW residential solar electric system. The homeowner paid the remainder of the cost, and now has a high quality and long lasting solar electric system that will produce 90% of his electricity, for the next 30 years. He will also receive the 26% Federal tax credit as well. This tax credit is available to any homeowner or commercial building owner who buys a solar electric system.
Ecohouse Solar Foundation funds are now available to other Mid-Ohio Habitat for Humanity homeowners, starting this year.
“We look forward to making solar energy available to more people who might not otherwise consider it as an option for themselves. We want to see solar in every neighborhood in Central Ohio.” -Kevin Eigel Owner of Ecohouse Solar
For every 10KW of solar installed, it is the equivalent of planting five acres of trees, or taking three cars off the road for 25 years.
