Delivering Solar at Schools Since 2016

We maintain the trust and confidence of diverse partners through persistent good work. To date, we’ve partnered with more than 16 school districts and have executed more Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) across the Commonwealth than any other solar company.

Sun Tribe boasts a team of more than 80 experienced development, engineering, financial, regulatory, procurement, and construction experts. Our projects save school districts millions of dollars, avoid tens of millions of tons of fossil-fuel-driven CO2 emissions and air pollution, and benefit thousands of people in the communities in which we operate.

With a culture centered around safety, and multiple NABCEP-certified staffers, we work with you to build high-quality projects safely and on time.

Solar That Does More

Solar Empowered Schools

Solar schools have the unique opportunity to transform their solar arrays into learning labs for renewable energy, generating rich STEM curriculum connections for students of any age — from elementary schoolers learning about the sun to high schoolers engaging in technical career training.

Unlocking Solar for Schools

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)

For public sector partners, the up-front investment required to design and install a solar system has historically been cost prohibitive. However, Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) have changed that dynamic significantly. They are an essential tool in ensuring that schools, local governments, and non-profits have the ability to save money by embracing solar.
