Be a Sun Buddy!
Is your roof too shady for solar panels? Don’t own your own home? Already have solar?
You can still help others put up solar panels — at no cost to you.
- Sun Buddies are the core of our micro-loan-like program. Sun Buddies provide local interest-free loans to community members to cover much of the upfront cost of installing PV solar systems on their homes.
- Each loan is guaranteed by Seeds for the Sol, and the contractual paperwork and money exchange is processed by Seeds for the Sol.
- Sun Buddy loans are repaid in 18 months or less. The Sun Harvester reaps the federal tax incentives (for a 4 kilowatt system, approximately $3600) and repays Seeds for the Sol. Seeds for the Sol pays all Sun Buddy Loans by July 1st of the contracted year.
To see if becoming a Sun Buddy is right for you, please email Sarah Spanger: sarah[at]seedsforthesol.org.
Important: Sun Buddy loans are not a tax-deductable donation. If you’d like to support our work with a donation, please click here.
