Since 2006, Sonoma Equity Partners has focused on innovative technologies in renewable alternative energy development, net zero energy construction materials and methods, better practices in land management and related disruptive technologies. Sonoma provides project related consultative services and equity investment in new technologies and in projects that produce more than 20 MW of electricity from solar and wind resources.
According to the World Bank, over 1.1 billion people have no access to electricity, and a billion more only have intermittent access. These people rely on costly, outdated technologies that are harmful to their health, and hinder their opportunities for social and economic advancement.
Thanks to the rapid development of small-scale renewable technologies, many millions of people across the world can now generate their own electricity and/or access power off-grid. Solar stands out in particular. The price and accessibility of panels today means this build out can be led by the consumers themselves.
