In this week’s podcast we discuss a potential ‘benevolent’ financing opportunity for nonprofits that may want to consider before going solar. In general, a high net worth supporter of a nonprofit can purchase the solar for the nonprofit, assume the tax benefits and then gift the solar to the nonprofit in 7 years. We strongly urge any nonprofit or other person considering this financing arrangement to discuss this with their tax professional. But it is a great way for nonprofits to maximize the benefits of going solar.
