Bright Community Capital

Bright Community Capital provides flexible financing to clean energy projects and developers. 

ABOUT BCC

CEI launched BCC to accelerate the deployment of clean energy projects in underserved markets across the country with a mission to fight climate change and environmental degradation and to make the clean energy transition more inclusive.

BCC is looking for like-minded developers who can benefit from a creative partner that takes the long view and can offer a variety of financing tools to scale local and regional developers. 

OUR GOALS

Increase access to solar energy through installations on AFFORDABLE HOUSING
Expand solar adoption at the community level via installations on COMMUNITY FACILITIES and MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS
LOWER POWER COSTS for cities and members of low-income communities
INCREASE POLLINATOR & BIRD HABITATS through native plantings and meadow reclamation on ground-mounted sites

WHAT WE OFFER

Permanent Project Financing (Equity and Debt)

BCC brings long-term project level debt and equity for projects or portfolios of projects totaling at least 200 kW.

Flexible Capital for Developers

BCC provides capital to impact-driven renewable energy developers through flexible financing structures, such as royalty notes that allow payment based on sales rather than a hardcoded schedule.
