Printer-friendly version

Fifty cities and major employers have joined forces to spread clean energy and fight climate change by securing group discounts on solar and electric vehicles for residents of the greater Bay Area.  The City of Brisbane is, for the third year in a row now, a participating agency in the SunShares program.  That means all those who live or work in Brisbane are eligible for the discounts…and there are options for everyone – homeowners, renters, and drivers included!  A community evaluation committee selected the following vendors following a competitive Request for Proposals (RFP) process: PetersenDean Roofing and Solar, SkyTech Solar, Sunpower by Solar Technologies, San Francisco Toyota, and Premier Nissan of San Jose and Nissan San Francisco.  More information about the selected vendors and discounts being offered can be found on www.bayareasunshares.org.  Be sure to sign up to receive more information, including a no-obligation consultation for solar, and with pricing starting at 15% below market rates.  Now, more than ever, is the time to switch to renewable energy.  Sign up before November 30th to take advantage of the discounts on solar and electric vehicles!
