From the way electricity is generated to the ownership structure of utilities, we are at the beginning of a decades-long shift in energy production and consumption in the US. It is a powerful and positive force that moves us toward a 100% regenerative energy future, benefiting consumers and the environment in equal parts. With the current perfect alignment of technology, policy, and interest in climate solutions from the public, we are convinced now is the time to dive into regenerative energy headfirst. We have secured a site in Oregon as the first project location while we work in parallel on other offerings. The initial objective is to add a solar array to a single family home with a south facing roof and a capacity of sixteen 320 Watt panels. The electricity generated will offset the usage of the house and any excess will be sold to the local utility company, Pacific Power. And best of all, by using a representative blend of Oregon’s standard grid source (coal, natural gas, solar, wind, and hydro) we estimate that this project alone will offset 1,780 pounds of CO2 every single year!
This initial offering will allow the GreenSeed team to explore construction costs, timelines, consumer interest, and other finances. Please know that all projections are estimates and are subject to change. However, we do not foresee any barriers to rapid completion of this rooftop solar at this time. In addition, there are plans to expand this project to a 14kW system on an adjacent patio roof. That project extension will be published as a second offering in the near future.
The project will cost $6,800 after factoring in a 26% federal tax incentive as well as local incentives that GreenSeed will apply for on investors behalf. Your purchase of a solar panel will include all required items for interconnection: electrical components, an inverter, and mounting hardware. Each kit (1 panel + equipment) will cost $425. The listed price only factors in the federal tax incentive. Local incentives will be credited to your account once GreenSeed has acquired them.
GreenSeed’s buy back policy means that you start making a profit on day 1 of interconnection, and you cash out of your investment at any time after our 1 year minimum investment period. That means you can feel secure in the knowledge that your investment will always be there should your plans change.
Projects with nameplate capacity less than 30kW typically take about 2 months to install. While the size and capacity of the project are a large factor of the timeline, they are not the only factor. GreenSeed must work with the local municipality, state regulations, and utility providers to ensure a project is safely installed. This means a project can take as little as 1 month to as much as a year to install and begin operation at a project. GreenSeed will of course be working expeditiously to complete the project as soon as possible, and way update investors regularly with project updates.
We estimate that an investment with GreenSeed will provide a return of 2% to 5% annually. The projections for this particular project will become more precise after the project has been in operation for 1 year. It is important to note that these are only estimates, and do not represent guaranteed returns. There are many different factors that affect the return of a solar project, from the sale price of electricity to the weather.
