About Capital Good Fund

Capital Good Fund (“Good Fund”) is a nonprofit, U.S. Treasury-certified Community Development Financial Institution headquartered in Providence, RI. Founded in 2009, our mission is to create pathways out of poverty and advance a green economy through inclusive financial services. Good Fund employees are committed to using financial services to transform the lives of those we serve.

Job Description / Responsibilities

This full-time position is an opportunity to help Good Fund’s subsidiary, Pennsylvania BRIGHT Solar, LLC (“PA BRIGHT”) rapidly establish, pilot, and then scale our solar and battery-storage leasing model, first in Greater Philadelphia and Southwestern Pennsylvania, then statewide. PA BRIGHT, a wholly owned subsidiary of Good Fund, was formed to leverage the new “Direct Pay” provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act. Direct Pay allows BRIGHT to monetize federal clean energy tax credits to deliver bill savings to low- and moderate-income homeowners, renters, and communities.

The Director of PA BRIGHT will report to Capital Good Fund’s CEO and be directly responsible for various aspects of the leasing and PPA programs in Pennsylvania, including program and product design, development, expansion, and refinement; contractor recruitment and management; and customer acquisition and outreach. The Director will also support other elements of the BRIGHT program, but not be directly responsible. These include helping to raise debt and grant capital by providing data points to and assisting in the financial modeling for the Development Team; improving technology and policies and procedures by providing input and feedback to the Origination, Servicing, and IT departments; and raising awareness of the program by engaging with media, assisting in the drafting of Op-Eds and blog posts, and advocating for policies that align with the program’s mission, such as net-metering and community solar.

In this role, the Director of PA BRIGHT will:

  • Recruit and manage EPCs for the pilot program in Pennsylvania as well as future programs in Pennsylvania, such as the scale-up of the BRIGHT Solar lease with federal funding; the design and launch of an energy-efficiency loan program and/or Virtual Power Plant pilot; and the consideration of an EV lease pilot in the future.
  • Play a key role in all aspects of customer development and outreach, including the direct recruitment and management of future salespeople; working with the Marketing Team on various PR efforts; implementing refer-a-friend programs; and engaging stakeholders ranging from community members to customers, nonprofits, and elected officials
  • Monitor and track KPIs for the program–such as megawatts of solar deployed, savings realized, jobs created, and contracts signed–and report the data to internal and external stakeholders
  • Assist with financial modeling and other analysis needed to evaluate opportunities for expansion, such as launching a community solar program, or accepting a sub-grant from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to otherwise scale, expand, or modify the program
  • Advocate for policies that benefit both the program and low-income communities, for instance by intervening in utility rate cases, testifying in support of net metering, commenting on proposed federal guidance relevant to BRIGHT programming, and writing op-eds
  • Innovate new ways to drive decarbonization, cost savings, pollution reduction, and job creation in low- and moderate-income communities
  • Play a lead role in design, pilot, evaluation, and scale of Pennsylvania BRIGHT
