The Progressive National Baptist Convention (PNBC), Geostellar and Together Solar are partnering, according to Geostellar.
The PNBC and Geostellar connected through Together Solar, an online solar energy platform. Under the agreement, Geostellar will provide energy to its churches, congregations and the communities in which they are located. The project between Geostellar and PNBC – which has about 2.5 million members — will feature community solar initiatives.
In these arrangements, participating members get access to electricity generated by solar panels hosted elsewhere in the community. In such arrangements, subscribers get energy at reduced rates while the hosts of the solar panels, which may be residential, commercial or industrial property owners, get additional revenue streams.
