Alternatives - Renovus Solar

Renovus & ALternatives FCU
​A Match Made in Solar Heaven. 

​Renovus and Alternatives have changed solar financing forever

​In mid-2016 Renovus Solar and Alternatives Federal Credit Union got together and decided to make a difference. We engineered a one-of-a-kind solar loan product with low rates that helps make solar more accessible than ever. ​Our partnership was about more than business, it was about changing the world. It just so happens that our big dreams mean big savings on solar for you! 

​Start Simple

​​Apply online using an easy to execute financing form, or call up the Alternatives staff to work with someone one on one.

​Save Money

​Affordable rates make for affordable solar. Alternatives' staff are some of the best in the business, and they have helped our clients save millions.

​​Stay Flexible

​Alternatives and Renovus are the only partners to offer our industry-first FREE tax credit loan to cover the incentive portion of your investment.

​WH​y alternatives? 

​Alternatives Federal Credit Union is no ordinary financial institution. ​They are a Community Development Credit Union (CDCU), member-owned, locally controlled and self-supporting. ​Their purpose is to meet the financial needs of the communities they serve. ​By funding community members, and helping them take control of locally-sourced energy, they help Renovus tilt the balance of power back towards consumers.


​Renovus and Alternatives started their collaborative solar loan program in 2016. Since then, our loan product has been widely recognized as a revolutionary form of collaboration, and a one-of-a-kind tool in the solar space. The numbers speak for themselves, as Renovus and Alternatives have grown the loan program more than 500% in just three years.

​Local Solar Power

​is produced at a solar farm in your area. ​A percentage of that power is claimed by your subscription

​Local Lending Power

​When that sweet solar power hits the grid...BAM! You get energy credits that help you save money!

​Local People Power

​Each month, subscribers to that farm recieve credits on their bill. As if by magic, your bill is 10% lower.

​MAKING AN IMPACT - One watt at a time

​For Renovus, partnering with Alternatives was bigger than renewable power, it was about the power of people. As our solar programs expanded, so has our relationship with Alternatives, and something new and exciting has blossomed from that partnership.


Starting in 2018, ​for every system purchased by an Alternatives member, Renovus will donate $500 to Alternatives Impact.


Alternatives Impact is the non-profit, community outreach arm of Alternatives FCU. They plan, execute and manage numerous community services focused on topics like tax preparation, job training, business management, scale ability coaching and more. Renovus is proud to support this work, and grow this new side of it's partnership with Alternatives.
