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 panelsat 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@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.
