SunShares Solar Returns to WC

The City of Walnut Creek is excited to announce that SunShares is back this Fall! SunShares is a renewable energy procurement program making it easier and more affordable for Bay Area residents to go solar or purchase an electric vehicle. SunShares offers discounts and free workshops. There’s something for everyone — renters can also learn more about their clean energy options. To sign up or for more information, please visit: www.bayareasunshares.org.

A Contra Costa workshop will be held on September 28 from 7-8 PM at Concord’s City Hall, 1950 Parkside Drive, Concord. In addition, the program will hold several webinars covering the same material.
