Thursday, May 1, 2014

Let’s just say solar power social entrepreneur David Levine owes a big “thank you” to the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS). Passed in 2012 , it allows startups, including social enterprises, to tap a new source of financing–equity crowdfunding.

Levine founded Geostellar, a four year old online solar marketplace that also aims to map the solar power potential of every residence in the U.S., while demonstrating to homeowners their potential cost savings.
