New Resource has joined the Advisory Committee of the Business Council on Climate Change (BC3) , a partnership of San Francisco Bay Area businesses committed to cutting their greenhouse gas emissions.  BC3 members agree to reduce their climate change impact, be active leaders in the community, develop dialogue and coordinate activities with policy makers, share best practices and disclose their activities. “It’s a great fit for us because not only do we support these principles, they’re actually part of our mission, and we can serve as a resource on broader sustainability issues,” says New Resource Executive Vice President and Chief Credit Officer Bill Peterson, the bank’s representative on the committee.

Getting their own solar power is something a lot of homeowners would like to do, but many lose interest when they see the upfront installation cost.

Enter SunRun, an up-and-coming San Francisco–based company that’s partnering with New Resource Bank to make residential solar systems affordable. SunRun’s pioneering business model offers homeowners power purchase agreements (PPAs), which let them get solar at a reduced or no upfront cost. They pay only a monthly bill for electricity use; SunRun installs and maintains the systems.

“Eventful” barely begins to describe New Resource Bank’s first three years—emerging from infancy into the biggest economic crisis in half a century was a huge challenge. But we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, and we see an even more compelling story unfolding over the next few years as we bring our mission to a larger marketplace.
