There is no better time to go solar! Now through November 30th, you can sign up for SunShares to receive discounts on rooftop solar and battery storage from vetted solar contractors.

Learn more about your local, clean energy options! In this webinar, you will learn about Bay Area SunShares, a renewable energy program offering discounts on installing solar and battery storage.
