Thinking About Going Solar???
Sierra Club Partnership Offers Affordable, Easy Way

As efforts to fight climate change accelerate; the Sierra Club is helping our members and friends drop dirty fuels.  A new program is aimed at catalyzing wide-spread deployment of clean energy: the Solar Homes Campaign.

Through an innovative partnership with Sungevity, a leading national solar service provider, the Club is able to offer its members and friends an affordable way to get solar on their rooftops. For every home that goes solar through this program, Sungevity will give a $750 discount to the homeowner and $750 to the local Sierra Club Chapter for clean energy work and other efforts.  Previously, in order to get solar panels on your home you would have to conduct extensive research, hunt for rebates, obtain a permit, and be prepared to fork out $10,000-$20,000.  That was before the one-stop solar shop.

Residential solar companies like Sungevity are now offering a “solar service” for people who can’t afford to pay the up-front costs to put panels on their roofs.  Sungevity will install the panels for no up-front cost, and also handle all maintenance and service.  The homeowner pays for clean energy with a small monthly bill—which may be less than the household’s current energy bill.

“In order to end our dependence on dirty energy, we need as many Americans as possible to switch to clean energy like rooftop solar.  This is a high priority for the Sierra Club.  We are urging all of our members and supporters in California to work with Sungevity to find out if solar is right for them.  Every home that goes solar gets us one step closer to our goal of a clean energy economy,” said Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune about the program.

It’s a win-win-win.  An average Sungevity customer saves 15% on their electricity costs by going solar.  Your local Sierra Club will raise money for important campaigns.  And more solar will replace coal as our members cut their carbon footprints and collec¬tively help increase the use of this key clean energy solution.
