Application Deadline: Open until filled.
RE-volv is a nonprofit social enterprise focused on fighting climate change by accelerating the adoption of clean energy in local communities. RE-volv empowers people to bring clean energy to their communities by providing the upfront costs of installing solar energy systems for local nonprofits. Through an innovative solar financing model, these nonprofits immediately save on their electricity costs, while their monthly solar payments contribute to a revolving fund, which helps to pay for the next nonprofit’s solar system – a first-of-its-kind pay-it-forward model for solar energy.
RE-volv has received numerous awards, including a Business Innovation Award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Sunshot Initiative, is an inaugural member of the White House National Community Solar Partnership, and winner of the OpenIDEO Climate Innovation Fellowship.
RE-volv is at an exciting moment in the life of the organization. With 30 nonprofit solar projects financed in 10 states, RE-volv has proven that our model works, that there’s an enormous demand for our services, and that the opportunity to scale is massive.
Description of position
RE-volv is looking for a passionate and mission-driven individual with excellent writing skills to join our small, but mighty team. This is a 3-6 month volunteer position, working 15-20 hours a week. Work hours are flexible and you have the option of working remotely a portion of the time.
The Communications Intern will work with the Executive Director to cultivate more solar project leads and newsletter subscribers through digital marketing.
