In this webinar, you will learn about Bay Area SunShares, a renewable energy program offering discounts on installing solar and battery storage. SunShares is your opportunity to make a deeper commitment to clean energy and make your home resilient.

Join us for an introductory, one-hour webinar that explains how SunShares works, the basics of solar technology, financing, and incentives. We'll also discuss how solar works in Palo Alto – interconnection and electricity rates.

We will have representatives from the Business Council on Climate Change (BC3), the three vetted installers, and the City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) available to answer any questions you may have about going solar or installing battery storage. We look forward to you joining us for the CPAU SunShares webinar!
