Geographic areas served: Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco and Alameda counties in California

Programs: Solar Renewable Energy Projects: Initially focusing in the South Bay Area, SunWork's team will train volunteers to help physically install solar electric systems, and work along side these volunteers to carry out installations for a minimal cost. By accomplishing these installations more economically, SunWork and the people who volunteer with it will allow more people to afford these systems, spreading this cleaner, renewable alternative to the sources of energy that contribute to climate change.

Mission:
SunWork installs solar electricity systems on small-energy-footprint homes with the help of trained volunteers.

SunWork's innovative model lets it deliver solar power to homeowners with already modest electricity use (and correspondingly low electricity bills) at a third less than the conventional cost, allowing more people to make the switch to solar and enabling broader adoption of this clean, safe, and renewable alternative to the sources of energy that contribute to climate change.

SunWork also installs solar systems for other nonprofit organizations to help minimize energy costs and protect against rising energy bills.

SunWork takes care of every aspect of a solar installation, from site analysis and system design, to permitting and rebate paperwork, to installation, inspection, and continued support. SunWork is deeply committed to creating a safe, energetic, enjoyable, and meaningful experience for its volunteers, and to achieving the highest standard of quality and convenience for its customers.

SunWork pushes to change the shape of our energy landscape, and to change the pervasive feeling that the environmental problems humanity faces are too big to be within the power of individuals to meaningfully impact.
Results:
Over 50 installations saving over 150 tons of CO2 pollution each year

As a volunteer with SunWork, I have seen the role it plays in not only expanding the market for solar installations, but also in educating the public about the benefits of solar energy. Outtreach efforts such as public presentations, solar-home tours, and booths at relevant events have helped to ... more »
