Pivot Energy, a leading community solar developer, has donated $5,000 to PRIDE of Ticonderoga, a non-profit committed to promoting economic opportunities through affordable housing, community investments, and historic preservation in Ticonderoga and the surrounding counties.

The donation from Pivot Energy will be used towards energy efficiency upgrades for low-income residents, saving recipients money on energy bills in the long run.

Pivot Energy is developing a 24.5 MW solar portfolio in New York, about enough energy to power 18,375 homes. Most of the projects in the New York portfolio will be developed as community solar. Community solar provides an alternative to renewable energy access and economic benefits for residents and businesses who cannot install or don’t want a solar array on their roof or property.

As part of its commitment to social impact in the areas it operates, the national renewable energy provider partners with local organizations to invest in communities. Pivot Energy is a Certified B Corporation and works to ensure their business activities have a positive impact on the planet, people, and profit.

“We are delighted to partner with such a well-respected organization as PRIDE of Ticonderoga to expand their services to the local community,” said Annie Lappé, Vice President of Policy and Impact at Pivot Energy. “We are proud to support their work to help families in Ticonderoga lower their energy bills through energy efficiency upgrades. We believe these types of energy bill reduction efforts, paired with community solar subscriptions can be a solution to permanently reduce energy bills for families struggling to afford their bills.”

PRIDE of Ticonderoga is well-known in the area for its economic development programs which include, home rehabilitation, emergency home repairs, and affordable housing development, in addition to its historic preservation efforts and community programs addressing food security. The donation from Pivot Energy goes hand-in-glove with its housing programs and will be used for upgrading between 5-10 households for energy efficiency.

“PRIDE is profoundly grateful for Pivot’s support and investment in our community. Not only with their new community solar project but also through their direct programmatic support. Energy efficiency is financially out-of-reach for many local residents. We are excited to be able to assist 5-10 of our Neighbors Helping Neighbors clients with their energy-efficient appliance replacements and upgrades through this new partnership with Pivot,” said PRIDE Executive Director, Nicole Justice Green.
