Here are a few ways you can help spread the word about this opportunity:

1.) If you’re not familiar with solar group buys, attend a live- or pre-recorded webinar. Webinar participants will learn:

  • How we produce clean, renewable energy from the sun
  • How solar protects against rising energy costs
  • How participants reduce or even eliminate their electric bill
  • How quickly investing in solar can pay for itself
  • How solar increases property values
