About

DC SUN is an umbrella organization for 11 neighborhood solar coops located throughout Washington, DC. Check out a video on our history and how we advocate for solar in DC:

DC SUN strives to make rooftop solar power accessible and affordable for everyone by providing communities with the information, connections, and opportunities they need to move efficiently through the “solarization” process.

Because we are not allied with any specific company or product, we are uniquely positioned to give you unbiased, thoughtful advice based on our extensive industry experience.  We will be there to support you throughout the process!

DC SUN is supported through 100% volunteer work, and we are composed of individuals, families, businesses, and neighborhood leaders. Join us!

Our coops have members of all ages!
