Bold Idea 

Take on global climate change at a meaningful scale by building a one-stop-shop for companies to eliminate their entire carbon footprint.

Summary 
Carbon Lighthouse enables consumers and corporations across the globe to profitably eliminate their carbon footprints. By combining four existing technologies—energy efficiency, demand response, renewable energy, and carbon allowances—into a single financed package, Carbon Lighthouse eliminates the upfront costs, transaction costs, and redundant engineering/contracting currently preventing corporations from profitably eliminating their carbon footprint.
