Shared Power Network helps education-focused nonprofit organizations access solar energy.
Our North Star
We will utilize the powerful impact of solar energy to equip, educate and empower developing communities through their educational nonprofits.
Why We Exist
Shared Power Network understands the potential of solar energy — both as a power source and an opportunity for the communities it impacts. Local installations provide innumerable benefits for school-age students, educators, utility-paying schools and nonprofit organizations. We aim to bring those benefits to all that we can.
Future generations will realize the full potential of solar energy — it starts now.
In 2009, the Kuss family donated a small solar array to the McConnell Arts Center in Worthington, Ohio — a community center designed to spark learning and explore creative conversations. Little did we know, it was the seed for things to come.
Ten years later, over weekly breakfast meetings, Greg and Jake Kuss tried to figure out how they could take the impact of solar energy and bring it to every community — despite upfront costs and project financing. Greg’s extensive knowledge of the industry, co-founding Green Energy Ohio and 10-plus years running Solarvision LLC, and Jake’s background in marketing, project management and community-driven nonprofits were enough to make it happen.
Through donations from panel suppliers, like-minded citizens and generous businesses, Shared Power Network is bringing the dynamic potential of solar power to all socio-economic areas through their educational nonprofits.
