Go Smart Solar Takes the 1% Pledge
Giving back to San Antonio is important to us because Go Smart Solar was born and raised in San Antonio. Plus, our customers live here – we see them at the grocery store!
At Go Smart Solar, we believe that prosperity is delivered through financial performance AND making a positive contribution to society. Our founders believe positive social contributions are as important as financial return, so they committed to the 1% Pledge—1% of top line revenue is given back to the community. In 2017, Go Smart Solar donated over $20,000 of in-kind services to the San Antonio Zoo School and facilitated the donation of 25kW of free solar PV panels from Mission Solar Energy. With the 1% Pledge, as we grow, so do our local contributions.
In addition to our 1% Pledge, Go Smart Solar founders and employees give back to the community by serving as Directors for various nonprofits and sponsoring community events. The following are organizations and events that we support:
- The San Antonio Zoo
- Build San Antonio Green
- Trinity Students and Startups
- San Antonio Climate Action Planning Committee
- Northside Education Foundation
- Westside Development Corporation
We’re looking for ideas for 2018.
Our community values companies that serve a social purpose. Join us in the 1% Pledge by finding meaningful ways to give back to the community.
