To give everyone access to clean, renewable energy solutions – enabling consumers to make informed decisions about their energy usage, the environment, and how to improve their lives with clean energy.
SunShare started with a simple idea: to give anyone with an electricity bill access to solar energy. Ten years later, we’ve created something even bigger – a new way for utilities and consumers to move from centralized power generation to distributed energy, tap the power of the private sector, and tackle climate change cost-effectively.
Founded in 2011, we are one of America’s largest and fastest-growing community solar companies. We believe making clean energy choices for businesses, institutions, homeowners, and renters should be easy, and that anyone with an electric bill should have the option to purchase solar energy. We are a dynamic and driven company developing 1-7 MW community solar projects at scale. With offices in Minneapolis and Denver, we are committed to hiring and developing the best talent.
