SunShares Program

Solar. Simple. Together.

Fremont has teamed up with over forty Bay Area local governments and major employers to offer a solar group-purchasing (bulk buy) program for homeowners.

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. This year's SunShares program offers homeowners the opportunity to receive a discounted price on the purchase or lease of zero emission vehicles (ZEV) as well.
