SunShares Program

Simple. Affordable. Together.

Administered by the Business Council on Climate Change (BC3), the Bay Area SunShares Program pools the buying power of individual participants to get more competitive pricing from solar companies, making going solar easier and more affordable than ever for residents. 

2018 is the fourth year of participation for the City of Fremont as a SunShares outreach partner, helping local residents and employees access discounted pricing and resources to help them go solar and purchase zero emissions vehicles.
