Right now, all of us here in Virginia – and throughout the world – are thinking about the way COVID-19 is impacting our lives. We are all focused on keeping our families safe, educating our communities, and doing our best to prepare for uncertainty. We understand most people are probably not thinking much about solar.
Here’s the truth: at Sun Tribe, we’re proud of the work that we do, and that we’re the leading provider of on-site public sector renewable energy in Virginia. But we take even more pride in being good people, partners, and neighbors. And we want to make sure we’re doing all we can to support and strengthen our communities.
That’s why over the next few weeks, many members of our team are redirecting efforts towards community service and support, including assisting with meal delivery, stocking goods at local food banks, and spreading the word on social media about programs that are underway and need more support.
Community is essential, but Health and Safety always come first at Sun Tribe, so our goal will be to do this work while keeping up with best public health practices and doing our part to “flatten the curve.”
Our team will be largely working remotely and following all of the latest recommendations from experts to support important measures like social distancing. Yet we’re mindful of the fact that there are vulnerable members of our communities who need our help now more than ever and that it’s possible to support them in responsible ways. Below is a list of organizations engaged in that effort.
In the meantime, we’re always glad to talk about solar. But we know that for many of the partners we serve – whether it’s school systems, local governments, or leading businesses – they’re focused on the day-to-day needs of their communities outside of energy. And we remain committed to supporting their efforts as we all adapt to challenging times.
