Sign up by Nov 15: Solar discounts for Piedmont homeowners

Limited-time discounts on rooftop solar and battery storage

Published October 13, 2023

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 November 15th 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.

The City of Piedmont is proud to join over 40 other Bay Area municipalities and employers to support residents’ transition to cleaner energy at home by partnering with the SunShares program, which has helped over 1,000 Bay Area households install 5.8MW of solar since 2016.
