Solarthon is our largest community installation event of the year!
Solarthon is a fundraiser and solar installation block party, where volunteers come together to install solar for a community that needs it most. Thank you to everyone who came out to our 2016 Solarthon Event in West Sacramento! With help from our sponsors, build participants, homeowners, and community members, we were able to install 4 solar electric systems for families in the Westacre and Bryte neighborhoods.
TOTAL EVENT IMPACTS
The event brought together over 30 job trainees, community volunteers and corporate sponsors to install 15kW of solar power for four West Sacramento families in one day, saving the families $140,500 and eliminating 287 tons of GHG emissions over the systems’ lifetime - equivalent to the planning of 6,680 trees!
