Bay Area entrepreneur Ryan Levinson has started a great new venture called SunFunder, which uses crowd-sourcing to fund solar initiatives in far-flung parts of the world where electricity is a scarce and precious commodity. One such community is the Solar Village in Palawan. I made a modest investment in this project and recently learned that the project had been completely funded, and my investment has already earned a repayment (which can be reinvested) and “impact points.” See www.SunFunder.com.
