BlocPowerNew York, NY blocpower.org
BlocPower’s online marketplace connects capital to investment-grade green building projects in financially under-served communities. Together with community leaders, the company assembles a “bloc” of 4 or more nonprofits, small businesses, houses of worship, or multi-family housing units that would benefit from energy-saving retrofits. By creating a bloc, BlocPower customers reduce default risk and access discounts on large purchases. For each project, the company’s experienced engineers perform energy audits that guide customers on the right mix of technology solutions and behavioral changes for optimal energy savings.
