About Us

CHERP Solar Works is a project of the California-based 501(c)(3), Community Home Energy Revolution Project (CHERP, Inc.).

 

Our mission is to extend the reach of renewable energy to economically disinvested and environmentally burdened communities.  We’re dedicated to creating green-sector jobs—particularly for those with barriers to entry in the workforce. We aim to stimulate local economies, pursue environmental justice and achieve greenhouse gas reductions.

 

Through a licensing agreement with idealPV LLC, we will be producing the world’s most advanced solar panels, in a non-profit assembly factory in Pomona, California. We're also incubating a network of distributed manufacturing centers, called the Locally Grown Power national solar factory network, in economically disadvantaged and environmentally burdened communities across the country.
