About Clean Feet Investors I, LLC

Solar P.V. units at Crossroads College Prep School, St. Louis, MO CFI seeks to provide significant returns from socially responsible investments in small to medium-sized renewable energy and energy conserving projects.

By employing effective investment structures for sophisticated investors, CFI is helping to fill the current void in “non-dilutive” capital for an industry segment that is both very attractive and critical for an effective overall energy policy.

Socially Responsible Investment

Fighting the War on Carbon

CFI investments are with entrepreneurial companies that are proponents of clean sustainable and more efficient energy usage thus replacing energy from fossil fuels, the source of carbon emissions that are accelerating global climate change.

Critical Funding Need

There is a high demand for conventional financing sources for entrepreneurs developing renewable energy projects in the low to mid-capital size range. CFI is working to help fill the void in financing for an industry segment critical for an effective overall energy policy with a unique "non-dilutive" alternative.

Impact Investing Opportunity

This industry segment critically needs long term funding mechanisms developed. At the same time, these investments should create green jobs and economic growth while helping to reduce the dependence on foreign oil. CFI has the potential to create "game changing" implications for certain niche applications. The greater the diversity of technologies CFI supports, the greater the opportunity to achieve true impact investing results.
