Infiniti Energy is a full-service solar power developer providing engineering, procurement, construction, and long-term financing to select clients and to other solar companies. The Infiniti Equity Fund (IEF) was established by Infiniti Energy LLC in 2021. IEF supports and empowers organizations and communities to address environmental justice, support workforce development, and tackle organizational obstacles to justly and equitably grow our nation’s renewable energy industry.

In its first round of grant funding, IEF seeks to award a single $10,000 grant to a non-profit organization working in New Jersey. IEF invites applications for innovative projects that seek to advance environmental justice through educational initiatives in schools, colleges, or within the community at large. IEF will award a grant in support of an inventive, practical, and replicable project that prepares the future workforce to become socially responsible leaders. Whether through piloting programs in schools, engaging with workforce development initiatives or working with organized labor, we anticipate that applications will address this opportunity through a diverse set of responses.

Respondents must be tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations. Respondents without such status may apply under an umbrella organization or fiscal sponsor, though the application must be accompanied by a letter of agreement detailing the project and the nature of the sponsoring organization’s support or involvement.

Responses are due February 8, 2022, and the award is anticipated by March 1st, 2022.
