Harness the power of solar with SunShares

Submitted By City of Fremont

Solar electricity is helping cities throughout the Bay Area meet energy needs while reducing air pollution, enhancing resiliency, and revitalizing neighborhoods.

The City of Fremont is one of nearly 40 local government agencies and major employers participating in Bay Area SunShares, a community-wide clean energy program that expands access to solar energy and zero-emission vehicles via pre-negotiated discounts. By pooling the buying power of individual participants, SunShares has negotiated competitive pricing from solar and ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) vendors, passing those discounts on to residents.

Three local and recognized solar installation companies (PetersenDean, SkyTech Solar, and SunRun) have been selected for the program and are offering discounted pricing to residents, making now the most affordable time to go solar! This year, SunShares is also introducing zero-emission vehicle discount options on the Nissan Leaf and Toyota Mirai.

Imagine the possibilities: Save on your home utility bills, cut your gas costs, reduce your greenhouse gas footprint, and drive on clean energy! Plus, youÕll be doing your part to help Fremont win the $5 Million Georgetown University Energy Prize.

Learn more by attending a workshop at the Fremont Main Library on
Saturday, September 24. Register at and scroll to Sunshares Workshop Fremont or visit

Also, visit to sign up for a no-cost, no-obligation home solar evaluation, receive your vehicle discount code, and learn how you can save on your utility bill for years to come by plugging into the sun. This limited time offer is available until November 4.
