CGB Green Liberty Notes LLC, a subsidiary of the Connecticut Green Bank, proudly announces their second   Green Liberty offering, a crowdfunding campaign launched in partnership with Raise Green, a social and environmental marketplace for impact investing. This offering builds upon the success of a similar offering in January that allowed citizens to invest in the Green Bank’s mission to confront climate change with as little as $100. 

“We were encouraged by the interest in our first Green Liberty offering, which reached 180% of our target in a month,” said Bryan Garcia, President and CEO of the Green Bank. “Through lower investment minimums, more everyday people are empowered to help us combat climate change and earn a return on their money by supporting energy efficiency for small businesses. Raise Green’s crowdfunding platform makes investing accessible to residents in Connecticut and across the country. In our first offering, we had investors representing 25 states, motivated to make a difference. Our second offering is a great way to mark Earth Month and celebrate the 52nd Earth Day.”

Investments in the Green Liberty offering support Eversource’s Small Business Energy Advantage (SBEA) program, which enables small businesses in Connecticut to reduce their energy costs through efficiency upgrades and zero interest loans.

As a result of the climate benefits associated with the SBEA program, the Green Liberty offering has been reviewed and verified for its environmental attributes by Kestrel Verifiers.
