    Great idea--too bad I feel to poverty stricken to invest.

  • Karilee Orchard

    This investment was the easiest choice - it's obvious that a few dollars really will make a difference. I was pleased that my contribution was doubled automatically, as well. Thanks for bringing this great resource "to light", Good!

    Great post! thanks. SunFunder is playing an important role. I've invested/provided a loan through them, and am very happy about the way they operate.

    Also, for those interested to learn more and get involved in bringing solar to low-income villagers in developing countries, I compiled relevant resources here:

    Hope this helps,

    You can now make a solar panel that you could wear in a jacket and not even know its actually a solar panel.
    The reason this stuff never gets off a shelf is from power companies.

    I also hope you do realize that "SMART" grid is a scam by power companies.http://video.pbs.org/video/1801235533

    SMART grid was design to bring power companies even more money. Funny isn't it? They take money at almost doing nothing but they need more. While there is many dangerous and malfunctioning things power companies should be putting money into. Instead they make a SMART GRID for more money.

    So.. "between now and 20202" huh ?

    • Audrey Desiderato

      Thanks for pointing this out. It's been fixed.

  • Ben Goldhirsh

    this is great, Audrey. How has the response to SunFunder been so far? It's such a no brainer. I'm going to be making a loan today. Beyond this, I hope you're awesome.

    • Audrey Desiderato

      Hey Ben, the response so far has been positive- particularly from potential solar companies/ partners that we talk to. Where we need more help is on attracting funders so that we can put up more projects (right now we are holding off because we don't want projects to sit on our platform for too long and not become fully funded). Being on GOOD will definitely help us out with that, so thanks!!

        Hey I work at Quetsol in Guatemala; we have been in preliminary talks with SunFunder! How did you get on Good.is? We are running a crowdfunding campaign to revolutionize rural solar with pay-as-you-go service model. Great article! Thanks

        • Audrey Desiderato

          Hi Alex, I'd love to move our conversation forward on a potential Quetsol - SunFunder partnership. Can we chat on Skype this week? As for your current crowdfunding campaign I suggest you create a "Do" page on GOOD. Cheers, -Audrey
