FUNDING LOAN & GRANT
BQuest invested in a solar project installation for Barrio Logan College Institute (BLCI) through the SunForAll Solar Fund. SunForAll provided 100% up-front funding, technical support, access to a rebate resulting in a discount, and a low-interest loan with no payments due during design and construction.
BLCI's mission is to break the cycle of poverty by preparing underserved students to be the first in their families to go to college through after school programs that begin in third grade. To date, 100% of their participants have enrolled in college. By installing solar, BLCI saves money on their utility bills that can instead be used to support their programs.
