Green Initiative

You can implement positive change in your region through donation to environmental organizations?

CVE has just launched its first Green Initiative. The goal: to have a positive impact in the towns and cities where our solar installations are located, by beautifying their community and preserving their environmental wealth.

CVE strives to build environmental benefits and develop awareness among the communities we work with. For every solar panel we install we will donate towards cleaner air, more trees and better natural habitats for wildlife and communities.

CVE North America will donate one dollar per solar panel installed, within one year of installation.
Donations will be made to projects addressing some or more of the causes below.

  • Tree planting
  • Land conservation
  • Protection of local wildlife and biodiversity
  • Education to environmental protection

The projects that CVE plans to support will also respond to the following criteria:

Local to the solar installation (preferably close to the town or in the same county)

Supported and implemented by nonprofit organizations with the 501(c)(3) status that has a significant expertise in the cause supported

Impactful: Projects must have a scalable, measurable, and long-term positive impact on the issue at stake

Community Partnerships and Donations

Fostering Community Growth: CVE North America’s $20K Donation Split

At CVE North America, we believe in fostering the growth of our communities just as passionately as we develop solar power. We take pride in contributing to a brighter, more sustainable future not only through renewable energy but also through our community outreach initiatives. In a recent company-wide vote to choose the recipient of a $20K donation, we found our team divided between two equally deserving organizations. Therefore, we decided to split the funds equally between Urban Dove and the Lower Eastside Girls Club, each receiving a generous contribution of $10K. 

Supporting Urban Dove: Empowering NYC’s Youth Through Education

Urban Dove’s mission is one we are proud to support. The organization uses the principles of Teamwork, Leadership, and Communication to equip New York City’s youth with crucial life, job, and academic skills. By creating a network of unique high schools, Urban Dove helps students who have fallen off-track and are at risk of not graduating. Annually, they serve over 500 students, with plans to extend their reach to 1,500 students within the next five years. Our team was fortunate enough to visit Urban Dove where we took a tour of their Brooklyn school and we spoke to students about the potential career opportunities within the solar industry. It was a joy to see their curiosity and potential firsthand.  

Commitment to the Lower Eastside Girls Club: Shaping Future Leaders

The Lower Eastside Girls Club (LESGC) is another organization making a significant impact on young lives. The club’s state-of-the-art community center serves as a safe space where girls and young women can connect with successful futures. They offer more than 50 unique weekly programs at no cost, focusing on arts, sciences, leadership, entrepreneurship, and wellness. LESGC aims to break the cycle of poverty by shaping the next generation of ethical, entrepreneurial, and environmental leaders. They help girls to overcome adversity, develop self-confidence, make ethical decisions, thrive academically, and step into the roles of leadership. The future holds promise with these incredible young women at the forefront. We had the privilege of visiting the LESGC, and we were captivated by the wide array of facilities – including a Maker Shop for engineering and coding, a Biology lab for STEM programming, and a 64-seat state-of-the-art planetarium. It was inspiring to witness how the club nurtures creativity, curiosity, and ambition in these young minds.
