I'm impressed with the concept of SunWork. Because they use trained volunteers (under the supervision of an experienced professional), the cost of installation for the low enery homeowner is dramatically reduced. Likely the lower price attracts homeowners who would not otherwise consider solar. Meanwhile volunteers get hands-on experience to prepare for future work in the field-- good for the trainee, good for this important industry.
