FUNDING LOAN & GRANT
BQuest invested in a solar project installation for San Diego Habitat for Humanity through the SunForAll Solar Fund. Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman, and child should have a simple, decent, and affordable home to live in dignity and safety. Habitat partners with families to help build or improve a place they can call home and to find the stability and security they need for a better future.
SunForAll provided Habitat for Humanity with 100% upfront financing of the solar installation and technical support. By installing solar at their administrative office and ReStore donation center, San Diego Habitat for Humanity is projected to save over $800,000 in utility expenses over the next 25 years.
What They Are Saying
“Caring about the community means caring about the environment we share. We build stability for our community by using sustainable building practices- building is a resource heavy industry. It is always great when we can afford to use renewable resources. The less we spend on energy bills, the more we can spend on building more homes."
-Karen Begin, Chief Development Officer, San Diego Habitat for Humanity
