FUNDING LOAN & GRANT
BQuest invested in a solar installation for San Ysidro Health's Mountain Health Family Medicine location in Campo, CA through the SunForAll Solar Fund. San Ysidro Health (SYH) received 100% up-front funding for the solar installation, technical support, access to a rebate resulting in a discount, and a low interest loan with no payments due during design and construction.
San Ysidro Health operates 45 clinic and program sites across the County of San Diego. SYH is an innovative organization committed to providing compassionate healthcare services to all, regardless of their insurance coverage or ability to pay. The Mountain Health Family Medicine clinic location is projected to save over $1.5 million on energy expenses over the lifetime of the solar installation-money that can be put back into SYH's operations and community health services.
What They Are Saying
“Thanks to SunForAll and the BQuest Foundation, our goal to convert to a sustainable energy source is being realized. Our solar installation is also part of our financial sustainability plan since the sun is plentiful and gives us most of the power needed to provide essential health services. All San Diego non-profits should consider powering their operations with solar for the good of the community we serve.”
