ReVolv

RE-volv is a web application that was set up with a vision to help solar energy spread rapidly across the country

CASE STUDY

Background

Through crowd-funding, RE-volv allows individuals that support clean energy to donate to help build solar-powered communities across the country. The money they contribute receives tax exemption.

RE-volv provides solar financing to community-based nonprofits and cooperatives around the country that don&t have access to traditional solar finance. These organizations save money on their electric costs while paying RE-volv back through a 20-year lease with interest. The lease payments are reinvested in a revolving fund, the Solar Seed Fund, which continually finances community-based solar projects. Over time, each dollar donated to an individual solar project will go towards financing three or more solar projects.


HOW WE WORK

Our Strategy

Problem

  • The app had a lot of bugs that resulted in many performance bottlenecks.
  • The design was also suboptimal. So, the requirement was to essentially revamp and redesign the whole application.

Solution
