SunCommon’s mission is to tear down the barriers to renewable energy. They do that by making it easy and affordable for all its customers to go solar. SunCommon has installed over 1,000 solar systems on homeowners’ rooftops, but about 50% of all homes can’t host solar because they don’t face the sun, or are shaded by trees or chimneys. In response, SunCommon launched Community Solar Array (CSA) solution in 2014 so that all of its customers could go solar, using access to solar through the grid using a group net metering solution.
