SSF provides low-income urban communities in developing economies with access to and ownership of clean reliable solar energy with emphasis on the promotion of enterprise.
We empower these communities by providing micro finance, solar energy equipment and technical assistance at an affordable cost. In so doing we give them the ability, equipment and knowledge they
need to own their own clean reliable energy source and improve their
quality of life.
We also provide socially aware investors the opportunity to underwrite a well managed initiative that provides a financial return and significant measurable social impact at proportionately low risk.
Our vision is a world where every individual in a city has access to clean, consistent and sustainable energy, and where access to electricity makes a better life for all.
Our mission is to provide the poorest urban communities around the world with access to affordable and sustainable energy so they can improve their quality of life and opportunities for the future.
To do this we:
- Provide microfinance to poor urban communities in the developing
- Enable manufacturers to supply their solar energy equipment to poor
- Provide technical assistance to businesses and families so they
properly manage their finances, maintain their equipment and obtain
real benefit from their access to electricity.
