Here’s a story that is so cool it’s even helping reverse global warming!

Every time a friend who you refer goes solar with Sungevity, you’ll each get $500. Going solar is good for your wallet, it’s good for the planet, and referring solar makes it good for your friends too! (…Which then makes it even better for your wallet and better for the planet. It’s a big high-fiving happy-fest of goodness and savings.)

Wendy, one of our amazing customers, went even further. She was trying to figure out how to use the $500 referral bonus to do even more good for her wallet and even more good for the planet. She thought about the 40-year old fridge in her basement, Ol’ Subzero. It was thunking away day in and day out, chewing up 20% of her electric bill each month and causing a whole bunch of carbon emissions.


Wendy’s a smart cookie — so she spent the money on a new energy efficient fridge to replace it. The new fridge that will help save the planet and save her money in the future (just like going solar)! Saving money and saving the planet is win-win. Using those savings to keep on saving is win-win-win!

Congratulations, Wendy! Do you have a Win-Win-Win Story for us? We’d love to hear it! Write it in the comments below or on our wall at
