SunRaise, LLC

SunRaise LLC, solar energy investors and developers, recently partnered with CEI and Camden National Bank to finance a series of four rooftop solar arrays on public schools in Rochester, NH.

Rochester Middle School solar array

“Coastal Enterprises Inc. has been constantly supportive and understanding of our business needs as SunRaise has grown over the past three years. In the last 6 months, it has been a pleasure working with John Egan and the entire team at CEI on the Rochester School District Solar Project. Knowing that the team at CEI was just one email or call away provided us the confidence to execute this transaction, and continue our mission of bringing low-cost solar power to schools and municipalities across the NorthEast.”–Bobby Lambert, VP of Finance, SunRaise Investments LLC

These solar installations will be owned and managed by SunRaise for 20 years, and the school district will purchase energy produced by the arrays at a discounted rate. This community partnership aims to offset energy costs and implement more renewable energy in the community.
