SunWork's first installation in September 2017 the area was a 2 kW system on the home of Deborah Marcus in the city of SLO. Deborah commented "As a nonprofit, SunWork provides solar at a significantly lower cost because they rely on thoroughly trained and committed volunteers to assist the SunWork staff with installations. We volunteered on our installation and in one long and enjoyable day we installed the system and got it running. I was very impressed by the professionalism, competence, and dedication of the SunWork staff.”
San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon attended the installation in support of the new clean energy service. “SunWork addresses an unmet need in the community. Their nonprofit model helps people save money on their electric bills and they provide an opportunity to learn valuable skills. At the same time, the planet wins by reducing carbon emissions and helping San Luis Obispo reach our climate action goals.” Council Member, Arron Gomez, also attended the event.
Mayor Heidi Harmon and Council Member Aaron Gomez, both kneeling, joined the SunWork volunteers, homeowner Deborah Marcus, and others to celebrate the first solar installation by SunWork in the San Luis Obispo area.
In December 2017, SunWork completed an installation for Mayor Heidi Harmon.
