About SunWork Renewable Energy Projects
477 VALLEY WAY, MILPITAS, CA 95035, US
SunWork's mission is to work with trained volunteers to reduce the cost of installing solar electricity systems. By installing systems more inexpensively, SunWork volunteers put solar power within more people's reach. The heart of our mission is to give environmentally concerned and conscious people an opportunity, with hands-on work and a clearly visible product, for engaging some of the serious environmental challenges present today. With SunWork, we strive to install solar electricity systems more inexpensively, to allow more people to afford these systems, to spread solar power widely - through the resource of the actions of individuals. SunWork pushes to change the shape of our energy landscape, and to change the feeling that the environmental problems humankind faces are too big to be within the ability of individuals to meaningfully impact.
SunWork's innovative model lets it deliver solar power to homeowners with already modest electricity use (and correspondingly low electricity bills) at a third less than the conventional cost, allowing more people to make the switch to solar and enabling broader adoption of this clean, safe, and renewable alternative to the sources of energy that contribute to climate change.
SunWork takes care of every aspect of a solar installation, from site analysis and system design, to permitting and rebate paperwork, to installation, inspection, and continued support. SunWork is deeply committed to creating a safe, energetic, enjoyable, and meaningful experience for its volunteers, and to achieving the highest standard of quality and convenience for its customers.
