• What is SunShares?


    The SunShares Program is administered by the Business Council on Climate Change (BC3) on behalf of a coalition of Bay Area cities, municipal agencies and major employers. Since 2016, SunShares has helped close to 1,000 Bay Area households install 5 MW of Solar!


    SunShares makes it simple and more affordable for Bay Area residents to go solar + storage by pooling the buying power and negotiating discounts with pre-vetted installers. This allows all of us to accelerate clean energy adoption and build regional resilience to climate change.


    Discounts are available for a limited time in the fall of each year (Sept. 1 - Nov. 15, 2022).
