Ilinois Contractor Accelerator

Elevate – a nonprofit organization that seeks for everyone to have clean and affordable heat, power, and water in their homes and communities — no matter who they are or where they live. Making the benefits and services of the clean energy economy accessible to everyone is how we fight climate change while supporting equity. We are dedicated to ensuring that the clean energy workforce is inclusive and equitable, so we have a priority to provide access and opportunities to business that often are left out.

Part of our mission is to support community-based businesses, specifically owned by people of color and women, in entering and/or expanding in the clean energy economy as well as directly connecting local contractors with projects opportunities. Elevate approaches our partnerships with contractors as mutual relationships to build. We want to partner with socially responsible businesses that are committed to delivering quality services to communities as well as provide quality jobs and opportunities to your employees. We expect good communication, timely responsiveness, direct feedback, quality work and alignment with our mission.
