Together, we are helping achieve the goal of climate sustainability. This page is your portal to involvement and information to support your work as a solar professional.

"SSC has benefitted my company by providing vetted leads where I am only competing with local installers known for quality and solid business ethics.  It's also helpful to me to drop SSC's name when I know a client is shopping.  SSC provides great advocacy and helps me compete on a higher level."
