n The client for this capstone project is RENEW Worcester which is a fledgling solar power project whose main goals are to bring renewable energy in the form of solar power into local, primarily low-income communities and are committed to the mission of making the transition off of fossil fuels to clean, renewable power. Based in Worcester, Massachusetts, they are a local chapter of Co-op Power which is a consumer-owned sustainable energy cooperative (co-op) made up of numerous different local chapters all over the New England area as well as the state of New York. The problem that we will attempt to address is to determine what kind of organization RENEW should become: non-profit or for-profit, while taking into consideration that our recommendation should be in line with what would best be suited for their goals and mission. The purpose of this project is to provide research into the solar power industry – with special focus on the solar industry in Massachusetts – as well as provide detailed information on the different types of non-profit and for-profit organizations.
