SunPower & Sierra Club To Partner On Residential Solar Incentive Program

Grassroots environmental organization Sierra Club has partnered with one of America’s leading solar manufacturers SunPower on a new incentive and rebate program open to the organisation’s more than 3.5 million members and supporters. 

Grassroots environmental organization Sierra Club has partnered with one of America’s leading solar manufacturers, SunPower, on a new incentive and rebate program open to the organization’s more than 3.5 million members and supporters.

The two organizations announced the partnership on Tuesday in which Sierra Club members and supporters will be given the opportunity to install SunPower’s home solar systems through a new program that will see SunPower make available $1,000 mail-in rebate to consumers and give Sierra Club $1,000 to support the organization’s mission. Put another way, as the company explains on the program’s website, “$1,000 for you, $1,000 for the Sierra Club.”

“Our climate is in crisis, and it is our mutual responsibility to protect the planet for this and future generations,” said Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club. “This partnership with SunPower offers our members a meaningful and cost-effective opportunity to reduce harmful carbon emissions, potentially save on home electricity bills and move the country towards clean energy.”

“By making solar more accessible to Sierra Club members, we’re advancing the organization’s efforts to protect our natural environment while also continuing SunPower’s work to change the way our world is powered,” added Norm Taffe, SunPower executive vice president, residential solar. “SunPower offers industry-leading solar technology that generates 60% more energy in the same space than conventional panels over the first 25 years, which means more savings on electricity bills and a lower carbon footprint for customers.”

Sierra Club has helped over 100 towns and cities across the United States over the past four years to achieve 100% clean energy and this new partnership with SunPower will help the organization further its efforts to advance climate solutions in the US and move the country towards 100% renewable energy.
