Los Angeles, CA – Charity + Power, a public benefit corporation, has set its sights on supporting nonprofit organizations that make a difference in other people’s lives. Most households are likely aware that a utility customer can purchase their electricity from a third-party provider other than their local utility. With Charity+Power’s unique business model, they have created a new and innovative approach for philanthropy: a guaranteed portion of a customer’s utility bill is donated directly to any 501(c)(3) non-profit organization of the customer’s choice, including their children’s school, religious organization, or local community organization.
It only takes a few minutes to join Charity+Power and donate through your utility bill. Initially, the customer is asked to select a rate plan offered by its various suppliers. Charity+Power even offers enrollment in a community solar program where the customer will receive 100% renewable energy supplied from a local solar farm. All of its rate plans are competitive with rate plans offered by the customer’s local utility.
Once the customer has selected a rate plan, they are able to select a nonprofit from a database containing every registered 501(c)(3) organization, and the donations will be paid to the nonprofit out of their bill automatically. The amount of the donation is clearly stated in the customer’s rate plan and is guaranteed by Charity+Power.
Kevin McSpadden, the founder of Charity+Power, is an attorney with over 30 years of experience in the energy regulatory industry. Kevin explains, “I am nearing the end of my career and wanted to create something that will be lasting and give back to the community.” Kevin adds, “for the customer, this seems to be a ‘no-brainer’; a customer has to pay their utility bill, so why not have a portion of the bill go to support the customer’s favorite charity?”
As a broker, Charity + Power does not own the power before it is sold to the customer, meaning that they are able to negotiate with their suppliers to get the lowest possible price for power and maximize the donation. Kevin added, “We believe we have created a platform for our suppliers to compete and offer their lowest pricing, which will translate to more money going to nonprofits.”
