Save Money, Cut Carbon AND Help the Sierra Club by Going Solar!
During these tough economic times, it can be difficult to put our values into action by choosing environmentally responsible options. And even harder to find the money to support our favorite organizations and advocacy efforts.
But, you can save money, cut carbon AND help Sierra Club through this innovative Solar Homes Campaign!
You are probably one of thousands of Sierra Club supporters and homeowners who want to do the right thing and put solar on your roof. The Solar Homes Campaign makes this possible and affordable while you are also supporting the great work of your local Sierra Club chapter. If you decide to go solar through this campaign, Sungevity will give $750 to our local Chapter and Group to be used for all of our great programs.
It takes less than a minute to fill out the online form, and the evaluation of your home is free. With solar panels on your roof, you end up paying LESS on your electric bill than you do now. And you will play a key role in our fight against global warming.
Sign up today for a free solar evaluation and find out how you can save money, cut carbon emissions, AND help your local Sierra Club chapter and Group!

Protecting Wild Places…
Permanently Protecting the Berryessa Snow Mountain Region: The Berryessa Snow Mountain region of northern California is one of the most biologically diverse, yet least known, regions of the state. Located less than one hundred miles from the Sacramento and Bay Area metropolitan regions, the area is a dazzling outdoor wonderland rich in unique natural features and loaded with recreational opportunities. Visitors can find California’s second-largest population of wintering bald eagles, float the thrilling rapids of wild and scenic Cache Creek, witness herds of wild Tule elk, and catch a glimpse of black bears. Opportunities for hiking, camping, botany, birding, hunting, and horseback riding abound. The area stretches over 100 miles from blue oak woodlands near Putah Creek in the south to the sub-alpine habitat of Snow Mountain Wilderness to the north.
