Homeowners can get discount rates on rooftop solar and backup battery storage by pooling your buying power with others — learn how to do so at a webinar series.
This limited-time group buying program is available to homeowners, Bay Area SunShares offers free site evaluations and quotes, pre-negotiated price discounts, and other incentives for rooftop solar and battery storage.
Combined with a 30% federal tax credit for rooftop solar this program can help put clean, carbon-free renewable energy within reach of more Berkeley households.
Rooftop solar can lower utility bills, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase the value of your home. Battery backups allow you to store energy for later use, which can help keep essential devices like medical equipment and refrigerators running during power outages.
