Overview
Florida Solar United Neighborhoods (FL SUN) is a project of the Community Power Network. FL SUN helps neighborhoods across the state form solar co-ops, supports co-op homeowners in weighing in collectively on renewable energy policy debates, and assists with media and communications for broad public education about the economic and environmental benefits of solar. Because of current restrictive policies, Florida, the Sunshine State, only generates 0.1 percent of its electricity from solar sources even though the state is ranked third in the nation for solar rooftop potential.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Solar United Neighbors (SUN) is a national organization representing the needs and interests of solar homeowners. With general support from the Hewlett Foundation, SUN will continue to help homeowners and neighborhoods access affordable solar and engage collectively in policy debates, and will also launch a new Texas program and a multi-state battery storage program. Their work creates local economic investment, new solar jobs, and significant reductions in global warming pollution.
for the Florida Sun Program  
Solar United Neighborhoods help communities go solar, join together, and advocate for the health and economic benefits of solar as needed to mitigate the onset of global warming. The Florida SUN program helps neighborhoods across the state form solar co-ops, supports co-op homeowners in weighing in collectively on renewable energy policy debates, and assists with media and communications for broad public education about the economic and environmental benefits of solar. Because of restrictive policies and other barriers, the Sunshine State only generates 0.1 percent of its electricity from solar sources even though the state is ranked third in the nation for solar rooftop potential. Florida SUN seeks to overcome those barriers.
