The combination of college tuition fees, living expenses, housing, and loans makes pursuing a higher education an expensive investment. It also scares away many enterprising students and their parents. While fees are exorbitant, we at SouthWest Sun Solar want to support your decision and share your load.
Since SouthWest Sun Solar came into existence in 2014, it has been devoted to creating awareness about solar energy in the California community. Our primary focus has been through continual community work and diversity outreach. We are extremely proud of our in-house staff which includes some of the most talented and humane people. They have been working hard every day to ensure environmental preservation and to bring more diversity to our workforce. The SouthWest Sun Solar Scholarship is designed to spread the word into the academic realm. Following our vision of bringing solar to every family, we want to support students who have a passion for solar by giving them a cheque of $500.
