City partners with SunShares program to offer limited-time discounts on rooftop solar and battery storage

The combination of architectural forms in this landscape design accentuates the grandeur of this solar-powered home featured on a garden tour in 2021.

From a City of Piedmont press release on Oct. 13

For a limited time, Piedmont homeowners can get rooftop solar and battery storage at roughly 15% below average market rates by pooling their buying power with others through the Bay Area SunShares program.

Rooftop solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions from your home and provides savings on your utility bill. Battery backups allow you to store energy for later use, which can help keep essential devices like medical equipment and refrigerators running during power outages. Both tools help contribute to energy independence and increase your home’s value.

Sign up by Nov. 15 to participate
When you register for SunShares, you’ll be contacted by two pre-vetted installers who were selected by an independent evaluation committee to schedule either a virtual roof evaluation or a no-contact site visit to assess your home’s suitability for solar.

They’ll then provide no-cost, no-obligation proposals tailored to your home’s needs based on roof type, sun exposure, electricity usage, and other factors. Once you get proposals, you’ll have a defined time window to sign a contract with your preferred installer at the SunShares discount rate.
