El Segundo, California (PRWEB) March 08, 2016
Kina’ole Capital Partners, a leading solar finance company offering Power Purchase Agreements (PPA’s) to home and business owners is proud to announce that the company has become a Certified B Corporation. The prestigious designation is awarded to new companies that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems and meet higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
“Kina’ole was founded with a mission to accelerate the adoption of solar power while providing our customers with a cleaner and lower cost of electricity, thus saving them money and contributing to a cleaner environment, “ said Kina’ole co-founder Blair Herbert. “We have proven that solar electricity can be delivered at or below the cost of conventional fossil fuel energy and we continue to strive to provide our customers with the lowest cost electricity available. Becoming a B Corp is a huge achievement for us and we couldn’t be more excited to announce this prestigious designation.”
To become a Certified B Corporation, B Lab, the nonprofit that certifies and supports B Corporations, conducted a rigorous evaluation of Kina’ole and determined the company met the comprehensive performance standards to qualify for certification. In becoming certified, Kina’ole will join other notable Certified B Corporations in committing to consider the impact of their decisions on their employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and environment.
“Receiving the B Corp Certification substantiates our mission here at Kina’ole and shows our customers and others throughout the industry that not only do we talk the talk, but we stand behind our commitment to driving change and making positive impacts on both our communities and environment. Working with a B Corp resonates with our clients, which has led many of them to join us and the greater B Corp community in a shared social mission.” - William Neverman of Kina’ole.
Offering solar financing, Kina’ole has successfully helped homeowners, business owners and non-profits throughout the United States go Solar, save money and contribute to our country’s shift to clean, renewable energy.
Kina’ole joins the ranks of other community and environmental leaders in doing good business and proving that business can be the driver of change. Kina’ole hopes to help other companies invest into solar power and commit to becoming Certified B Corporations.
