Jason Edens has been developing solar and renewable financing mechanisms for nearly 2 decades. His innovation and hard work in America’s heartland has earned the energy freedom of hundreds of families formerly dependent on energy assistance from the US Government. Today we hear his story and learn how the Rural Renewable Energy Alliance is offering innovative financing that could free up $5B a year in federal funding! 

I first met Jason thanks to his team on Twitter, and as soon as I heard the deeper story about the nonprofit he founded way back in 2000, I knew it was one for the SunCast audience.
