Powering Seaside with Solar for Ashore Hotel

This $15,000 support helps us to install PV solar systems in our 22-room hotel and to offset up our electrical cost up to 35%.

About the campaign

Adrift's Third Solar Project

Adrift Hotels, Inc. officially launched our newest sister property, Ashore Hotel, in Seaside, Oregon, in June of 2015. We are excited to be welcoming all guests and we have one big final finishing touch, solar panels!

We are installing a solar unit for our newest location because our company believes in sustainable practices. Please consider becoming a Squareholder, your support will fund the PV solar project for Ashore Hotel will help to offset our electricity usage up to 35%. Across the U.S., nearly 70% of all electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels. Solar energy systems reduce reliance on fossil-fuels which create air, land, and water pollution during processing and use. Clean, renewable solar power helps keep our community and our planet beautiful for generations to come.

What this Funding will mean for Ashore

The cost of powering our home and business has risen approximately 60% since the year 2000 -- and this cost continues to rise. Your help to fund Ashore's solar project will help us to immediately install the PV system, and you will help our company in doing our part to make this plant healthy for generation. With the savings on our electrical bill, we can reinvest in improvements for the hotel, and to continuously enhance guest experience.

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
