AIRE strives to become a self-sustaining organization by serving as a wayfinder and consultant for non-profits and municipalities seeking to pioneer and develop community-based renewable energy. Ultimately, AIRE seeks to move beyond donations and operate as a mission-driven social enterprise using project developer fees as our sole revenue source. We have fulfilled this commitment in large part, relying on fees, thrift, and to a great extent, our volunteerism and sacrifice.

However, we see new threats to community renewable energy development that need to be combated - and new opportunities for socially beneficial project collaborations that need to be created. All this can be accomplished with the addition of foundations and charitable donors. There are also worthy smaller projects that cannot afford much, if any, developer overhead - and every community renewable energy project AIRE works on sees examples of supply chain providers working to maximize profit at the expense of diminished renewable energy project benefits for the municipality or non-profit.

When a non-profit or municipal renewable energy project requires it, AIRE will always resort to volunteerism and servant leadership over careerism and salary - but with your donation, we can go beyond the "bare bones"/minimal solution to the optimal & elegant renewable energy development. 

... so THANKS for your interest & support!
