David Gottfried, founder of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), knew just where to go when he needed financing for his LEED platinum home renovation.
“I sought out New Resource because they were green,” he says. “I thought they would be great for our house. They understood what we were doing in the renovation.”
Gottfried ended up getting two loans on the property, which received the highest LEED score in the country for a small home. (LEED is the USGBC’s green building certification system.)

However, many can’t get the financing needed to install the technology on properties larger than a single-family residence but smaller than a utility-scale commercial site. That’s where Adam Capital comes in.
