FW: Put the sun to work in Inwood

Make the simple, meaningful switch to solar energy for your home.

Hi Eddie—I just wanted to make sure you saw my message from the other day.

Dear MoveOn member,

One day last month, Germany generated so much renewable energy that power prices went negative—it had to pay people to use electricity!1 How amazing is that?

This suggests the vision of powering a country with 100% renewable energy is closer than we think. Adopting clean energy on a mass scale will make a big difference in the important fight against climate change.

With a simple step, you can be part of the big wave of Americans switching to clean energy and battling the climate crisis—go solar and help turn this renewable vision into reality.

MoveOn is working with solar company Sungevity to help members go solar in an easy, cost-effective way.

Find out more about switching to solar. Sungevity will give you a $1,000 discount on your solar system if you sign up this month via this email.

If you request more information with the link above, Sungevity will call you and walk you through the options. They’ll manage all the details of any installation and offer various financing choices, including 0% down.

Sungevity will also give Civic Action $1,000 for each sign-up. This will help power our campaigns for progressive change, including the fight against climate change and the harmful influence of the Big Oil lobby in Congress.

Solar is the fastest-growing energy source in America, and it's now cost-competitive with fossil fuels in many places across the country.2 Fight climate change and help bring our 100% renewable energy future closer by switching to solar today.

Thanks for all you do.

Sungevity offer valid for new solar energy plans entered into, or purchases made using MoveOn's referral code between 5/1/2016 and 5/31/2016. After this period, discount will revert to $750. Offer is non-transferable and cannot be combined with any other offers or promotions, or redeemed for cash. Payment will be made to MoveOn Civic Action within 90 days of system interconnection. Availability varies according to location, electricity usage, and utility company. Your actual savings will vary and are dependent on several factors, including your payment plan, system production, geography, weather, shade, electricity usage, and utility rate structures and rate increases. For more information on how we calculate savings, please visit Solar customers can earn credit from their utilities through a process called “net metering”. Net metering policies can be changed in the future by entities over which Sungevity has no control. In some areas, the right to claim environmental impacts may be sold in the form of renewable energy credits (RECs).
