Solar Power World Editors Prepare for InstallationSolar Power World editors with finished system

Solar Power World interviewed SunWork in October for a podcast. They were so interested in the SunWork model that all three editors, Kathie Zipp, Kelly Pickerel and Kelsey Misbrener traveled to the Bay Area from Ohio to volunteer on a 5.2 kW solar system for an East Bay home owner in December. 

Their article and podcast provide fun and detailed insights into the volunteer experience.

What about those solar tariffs?Tariff Info

On February 7, 2018, a 30% tariff took effect on imported solar panels to the US from all countries. The stated reason for the tariff was to address the harm to American panel manufacturers caused by imports of cheap panels. Many solar advocates and organizations say this will not bring back manufacturing, will slow US solar growth, and will cost solar jobs overall.

The net impact is typically a 3 to 4% increase in
the price of a rooftop solar system immediately after the tariff was imposed.

SunWork Installs System for The Boys & Girls Clubs’ Belle Haven Clubhouse with Funding from Facebook & Assistance from Menlo Spark

Volunteers with final systemOver the year end holidays, SunWork volunteers completed a 24- kilowatt solar system for BGCP’s McNeil Family Clubhouse in the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park. Thanks to generous funding from Facebook, SunWork and our volunteers are helping BGCP save an estimated $6,000 on electric bills annually. 

Nonprofit Menlo Spark was key to making the project happen and they will work with BGCP to create a learning center that will provide hands-on education about renewable energy for the Clubhouse students. MORE PHOTOS
