Making Solar Accessible to All

The Rural Renewable Energy Alliance (RREAL) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2000 and dedicated to making solar energy accessible to communities of all income levels. They accomplish this mission primarily through the Solar Assistance program, which provides solar energy systems to low-income families and communities as a sustainable solution to energy poverty. RREAL also offer internships, hands-on training, and workshops for people of all ages to learn about solar energy.

REAL Solar is a special benefit corporation partially owned by RREAL, which means your Real Solar array could help empower more families.
