Solar. Simple. Together.

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Thinking about installing solar on your home but don’t know where to start or think it’s just too expensive?  Peninsula SunShares is here to help!

This spring the City of Brisbane is partnering with local nonprofit Vote Solar and neighboring communities throughout San Mateo County to launch a solar group discount program for homeowners.

The Peninsula SunShares program uses a tiered-pricing structure, City-supported education and outreach and a competitively selected installer to dramatically reduce the cost of solar.  Here’s how it works:

1. Community-sponsored program.  The City of Brisbane wants to make it easy for residents to see if their home is right for solar.  Sign up to schedule a no-obligation site visit. 

2. Below-market pricing.  Get your discounted solar installation price quote from the programs pre-selected solar installer.

3. Limited time.  Sign a contract by July 31st to have your new solar panels installed and save on your monthly electric bill for years to come.  Registration opens April 1st.

4. Help spread the word!  More participants means a better deal for you and more solar power for the Bay Area.

On Saturday, April 11th, BEST/PTO will be hosting, in partnership with the City of Brisbane, a community workshop on Peninsula SunShares.  It is open to the public.  Come to the Community Center (250 Visitacion Ave., Brisbane) from 12:30-2:00pm to learn more about the program!  (There will even be time to do remote site evaluations with attendees and schedule appointments).  Click here for the event flyer.
