I could never have accomplished these goals without the aid of SUN and I tell everyone who is interested in my array about the importance of SUN’s role in the process.

It’s much easier to compare proposals from installers with other people other than just doing it by yourself.

SREC fee discount

Save up to 50% off brokerage fees when you sell your SRECs.

A Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC) represents the "green" value of your electricity. You earn one SREC for every 1,000 kWh of electricity produced by a solar system.

SRECs are valuable because many utilities must buy a certain number of them each year to meet their sustainability requirements.

Once you go solar, you'll start generating SRECs, which you can sell through a licensed broker. Members who sell their SRECs through our partner, Sol Systems, get a discount on the brokerage fees.
