“The team at Sunwealth is changing who has access to solar power by changing who invests in it,” says Brooks. “We’re creating a win-win situation for investors and underserved communities alike. At a time when investors are looking for ways to put their money to work solving complex social and environmental challenges, Sunwealth offers an opportunity to bring renewable energy to a whole new audience, supporting local jobs in the growing green energy sector, reducing utility costs and lowering our carbon footprint.”
