Financing the Regenaissance Followed by Q&A with Jonathan Cloud and Victoria Zelin, Co-Founders of Possible Planet
Co-founders of Possible Planet, Jonathan Cloud and Victoria Zelin are on a mission to finance the transition to a regenerative future by creating strategies to attract capital and investment in clean energy. Today’s conversation is about PACE, (Property Assessed Clean Energy) — a source of financing that 1) requires no money out of pocket to make clean energy property improvements, 2) pays for itself with clean energy savings and 3) attaches the cost to the property rather than the property owner.
Join us to learn more about this game-changing innovation in financing that can help fund the transition not only to net zero buildings, but to buildings that capture more carbon than they emit.
Be sure to stick around after the interview for what will most certainly be an enlightening conversation.
In the meantime… JOIN US!
Scott and I have been busy working behind the scenes with a group of hemp industry leaders and farmers to get Farm Aid to make industrial hemp the focus of this year’s event.
With its tens of thousands of uses, industrial hemp promises to lift farmers out of debt and despair while providing sustainable solutions for planetary problems related to food, energy housing and so much more. The key to its success is education and strategic alliances between farmers, processors and manufacturers. Farm Aid has a unique opportunity to facilitate more widespread understanding and adoption of this remarkable crop.
Please sign on to our Change.org petition at https://www.change.org/p/farm-aid-focus-on-industrial-hemp-to-save-family-farms and share it widely. If we each share with our contacts and ask that they do the same, we can make this thing go viral. Together, we can make this vision a reality, for our farmers and for our future!
Thank you for all you do to shape a world that works!
Looking forward to seeing you Thursday!
~ Mira and Scott
